Marcia Bricker Halperin was born in Brooklyn and dreamed of being an artist since she tried to ‘Draw the Lumberjack’ in 1970 to win an art school scholarship . After receiving an M. F. A. from Brooklyn College, she was a member of the documentation team of the CETA Artist’s Project. MBH’s photographs are included in the collections of the Brooklyn Historical Society, the Brooklyn Museum, the City Lore Photo Archive, and the Daniel Cowin Collection. Recently she has been making documentary films combining photographs, video footage, and narrative to tell unique stories. This is her first solo exhibition in nearly 35 years.

The walls of the Spoke the Hub Re: Creation Center host a new changing solo visual art exhibit every 4-6 weeks entitled “Works on the Wall” which features the art of local painters, photographers, printmakers and multi-media artists. Exhibit requests are reviewed throughout the year. Artists should be aware that the space is an active one, filled with children and adults 7 days a week, thus content should be considered before applying. To apply, artists should send a resume, a hardcopy “portfolio” of current work or website address, and an SASE for return of materials to: Spoke the Hub Re:Creation Center, 748 Union Street, Brooklyn 11215.
