The Brooklyn Museum announced on May 27 the acquisition of a 18-foot-tall sculpture by the former street artist Brian Donnelly, more commonly known as KAWS. On view June 10–December 6, ALONG THE WAY portrays two gigantic wooden figures standing with heads lowered and one arm around each other in a gentle embrace. It will greet visitors on the first floor of the museum.
KAWS worked with a foundry in the Netherlands to produce the monumental piece. The exhibition also includes the paintings GLASS SMILE (2012) and SHOULD I BE ATTACKING (2013).
