On Earth Day, April 22nd and on April 23rd, our organization, will be partnering with Artolution, The Sacred Arts Research Foundation, M.A.I.S.C and the Borinquen Plaza Community Center YMCA of North Brooklyn to create a collaborative mural in the neighborhood of North Brooklyn at the North Brooklyn YMCA Eastern District Center, located at 125 Humboldt Street at the corner of Boerum. This community mural project will be a free public event for families to attend and participate in the completion of a public work of art. By establishing a visual public presence, we hope that the local community will join us in investing in the beautification and education of our city’s future. The theme of the mural will be a pictorial celebration of indigenous and native people & culture from around the world.
We invite YOU! Your families, schools, and communities to join us in celebrating world cultures from around the Earth!
