Like the graffiti history-promoting plaque recently installed at the 149th Street Writer’s Bench, the tiny public plaques of artist Keetra Dean Dixon are about connecting people to their surroundings. But befitting their small size, the connection is decidedly smaller and more personal. Emblazoned with “familiar slogans used during delightful moments of play or as a childhood reassurance,” Dixon hopes the tiny plaques “stimulate a discrete communal dialogue, insert moments of discovery into the daily routine & encourage a more intimate relation with a chosen path.” |Urban Prankster|
