Charm City Streets walked miles and miles each day last week seeking out recent and new-to-me murals in and around Brooklyn.
Late last week Charm City Streets had the pleasure of touring New York’s Astoria neighborhood and capturing images of the artwork created in early June during the 2018 Welling Court Mural Project.
The third part of Charm City Streets’ illustrated report on the 7th Annual Bushwick Collective Block Party provides you behind-the-scene coverage of an additional 11 artists:
Back in 2009, folks living in the Welling Court neighborhood of Queens asked Ad Hoc Art Gallery to help them clean up and enhance their community, and the Welling Court Mural Project was born. Every year since then, Ad Hoc Art invites artists from far and wide to help turn the neighborhood into an open-air art gallery. Their annual block party in June is a celebrated event.
Last weekend, the Bushwick Collective celebrated its 5th Annual Block Party. Renowned graffiti and street artists from all four corners of the globe gathered in Brooklyn to create new pieces live. Block after block, people packed the streets to watch these artists in action and to enjoy the live music performances.
