Leslie Ward is, well, basically, your average rock star. She’s another one of the neighborhood coordinators that came into her interview and knocked our socks off and she’s representing Prospect Lefferts Gardens for GO. Leslie has been working over the years with PLG Arts, but what really impressed us was her enthusiasm for the project and stategies for how she would reach out in her neighborhood. She literally came in with a list that she had researched, including artists that had shown at the Brooklyn Museum who lived in PLG, and started running down all these avenues for outreach that just blew us away. In her own words…
I’ve lived in PLG for 12 years.
You’ll find me hanging out at Lincoln Park Tavern, Sweet Basil & Prospect Park with my dog, Mali.
I’ll never move from PLG because the location is perfect….so close to the park, botanical gardens and museum. Plus only 10 minutes by train into the city….love that.
