Opposite a playground on Vernon Boulevard, Charm City Streets continues its photo tour of the 2017 Welling Court Mural Project.
Eight years ago, residents of Welling Court in the Astoria neighborhood of New York City joined forces with the Ad Hoc Art Gallery to enhance their small community through public art. 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.
Last weekend while touring Brooklyn and Queens, Charm City Streets uncovered an abundance of stencils, stickers, and wheatpastes – some quite recent, a number simply new to CCS, but each one worthy of note.
