Last night I stopped by the Bowery / Houston wall to see the Swoon & Groundswell mural collaboration in progress and this is what was going on... Below more info on the entire project from Groundswell and visit them here: http://www.groundswellmural.org
RECOVERY DIASPORA: BOWERY MURAL DEDICATION
From Groundswell: Join Groundswell, Goldman Properties, and Swoon for the unveiling of a temporary site-specific mural on the famed Bowery Mural wall, highlighting healing and recovery on the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy.
As a response to the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy, Groundswell unveiled a series of murals addressing healing and recovery in New York City communities among the neighborhoods most affected by the storm. Groundswell youth artists, in partnership with Master Artist Swoon, created a visual narrative that captures the concerns, hopes and overall spirits of these communities.
These murals will be tied together by the mural on the famed Bowery Mural wall, created by Swoon herself. The mural will be a testament to both resilience and vulnerability, and by engaging the public in its design, it will serve to highlight the importance of continued relief efforts by and for Sandy’s victims.
