DUMBO's Urban Art Program, Wooster Collective & Partners Bringing Best Artists To Brooklyn Walls!

Luckily, I was able to catch a few of the DUMBO mural project artists the other day and snap a few photos of not just the murals, but of the artists.  And, a couple of each artist at work who signed my Polaroid.  (Lucky, lucky note: I met Shepard Farey at the Wooster Collective Anniversary Party and he signed my photo too - it was like the Oscars for artists!)

Information on the project: Eight artists are beautifying the BQE with colorful murals along four Dumbo blocks. Located near York Street, the artworks are the product of a partnership between the DOT's Urban Art Program, Dumbo mega-landlord Two Trees Management, the Dumbo BID, and Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Works by CAM, MOMO, Stefan Sagmeister and Yuko Shizimu are sponsored by the BID and Two Trees, while the other paintings—by DALeast, Eltono, Shepard Fairey and Faith47—are presented by the gallery and Wooster Collective in conjunction with a group show at 525 W 22nd Street. Visit: to see the larger than life exhibit.
