From its humble beginning, this annual event has mushroomed into a dazzling array of artwork created by a host of prominent muralists, street artists and graffiti writers … both from around the corner and the globe. The 2017 Welling Court Mural Project took place Saturday, June 10th.

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.
