Prospect Park Boathouse

Piece description from the artist

The Prospect Park Boat house in Brooklyn, NY. This building is a gem, originally built in the 1870's. It was almost lost, but now houses the 1st of 1000 nature education facilities to be built across the country.

This view of the building is old, and almost iconic. But I'm fascinated with how the relationship to the building is constantly in flux. The meaning changes over the years.

About Noel Hefele

Bronx, NY

Noel Hefele was born and raised in Norwalk, Connecticut. His love for art grew out of a childhood obsession with comic books, and he currently paints landscapes. Noel is interested in the power of vision and what it means to really see something. To him, landscapes are shared spaces that represent what we have in common; he hopes that by looking at and valuing our environment, we can come to understand our place in this world a bit better.

Noel received his B.F.A. in painting from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a master's degree in arts and ecology from Dartington College of Arts in the United Kingdom. As of 2020, Noel lives and works in the Bronx, New York.
