On June 11, 2011, Friends of Brook Park (FOBP) will host Illegal Death a performance piece by Bronx based artist Alicia Grullon. Illegal Death is a re-enactment in response to the unresolved deaths of undocumented workers in the Tri-State area. It deals with the death of a 20-year old immigrant form Honduras who was found frozen to death in a forest on Long Island in February 2007 when temperatures dropped below -8.
Brook Park is located between 140th and 141st Streets at the corner of Brook Avenue in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the South, South Bronx. It is three blocks from the Brook Avenue local stop on the #6 subway and nine blocks from the 149th Street stop on the #2 or #5 subways.
The presentation of Illegal Death for FOBP has been made possible through a grant from the Puffin Foundation.
