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.
Coney Art Walls 2016 opened Memorial Day weekend in Brooklyn. Large-scale artwork by acclaimed street artists from across the country and around the world fills this open-air gallery. Coney Art Walls is located right on the boardwalk next to the original Nathan’s Hotdogs.
