The long-awaited Patti Smith art exhibit, Resilience of the Dreamer, has opened today in Fort Tilden. Sponsored in part by MoMA, the exhibit features a number of black-and-white photos by the godmother of punk. There is a separate installation of a “gilded four-post bed with pure white linens…that will wear down physically over time…a visualization  of courage and resilience” in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Later this evening at Fort Tilden, Smith and actor James Franco will be reading selected poems by Walt Whitman.
