In her piece Finding Inspiration for Art in the Betrayal of Privacy published earlier this week, Times Magazine writer Jenna Wortham gave big ups to some Brooklyn artists we’ve been writing about for the last year plus here.

“Art has the ability to be a mirror, reflecting back to us the world as it is, even if we’re not ready to see it,” Wortham writes. “Artists like Perry, Falaschetti and Onuoha are trying to awaken us from our complacency, pushing us to look beyond the blinding dazzle of our devices.”

The piece includes mentions of Mimi Onuoha and Roddy Schrock, two Technical.ly Brooklyn favorites.
