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.
This second collection of images details Aquarela, Claudia La Bianca, Case Maclaim, D*Face, DonRimx, Lexi Bella, Li-Hill, Lovenotes, Minuske, Mr Nerds, Nepo, Plasma Slug, and other street artists in action during the 2016 Bushwick Block Party.
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.
Last week Charm City Streets spent three days in Brooklyn, Williamsburg, and Lower Manhattan – enjoying the deli food and the street art.
In today’s post you see murals created earlier this summer during the annual Bushwick Block Party; plus, a number of other art pieces found in and around Bushwick.
