Free Takeshi Miyakawa

By danielle


We were shocked to hear that artist, furniture designer and one of our favorite former Brooklyn Designs standouts Takeshi Miyakawa was arrested on Saturday for doing what he does best – guerrilla art. He was taken into custody just after 2am while installing his “I (heart) New York” lighting project in Brooklyn. What was supposed to be a display of love for NYC and a celebration of New York Design Week was seen by another as bomb scare. The judge has sentenced Mr. Miyakawa to 30 days in jail and a mental evaluation.

We will be closely following this story and will share updates as we receive them. In the meantime, please sign the official petition to free Takeshi Miyakawa.
