|On Oct. 1, there
will be an enormous gingerbread house at the corner of Lafayette
Avenue and Ashland Place in Fort Greene.
While the Brooklyn Academy of Music undergoes a two-year restoration,
rather than scaffolding, it will be wrapped in large photographs
by Brazilian artist Vik Muniz. The new facade, titled "CandyBAM,"
measures 300 feet long by 60 feet tall and recreates the Beaux
Arts façade of the building with gummy bear cornices,
frosting windows and an M & M frieze. CandyBAM is a collaboration
between the Public Art Fund and BAM.
