If you’re walking in Fort Greene, Tuesdays through Sundays, from 11 am to 8 pm, don’t forget to look up. You don’t want to miss three mechanized, life-size marionettes (illustrated above) coming to life every hour, on the hour at 80 Hanson Place at South Portland Avenue.

Artist Clara Williams has fashioned an elaborate glockenspiel-like installation which emerges from the third-floor windows of the building to give an eight-minute scene (sans dialogue) from Arthur Miller’s 1968 play "The Price."

The production is presented by the Public Art Fund and the BAM Local Development Corporation, which will after renovations offer space in the building, 80 Arts - christened this week as the James E. Davis Arts Building - to small arts and art services groups at below-market rents.

"The Price (Giving in Gets You Nowhere)" will be on display through Oct. 26. For more information about the artist, call (212) 980-4575. For more information about 80 Arts, call the BAM LDC at (718) 789-9366.
