Mural Making in the Garden

Thursday, February 15, 2018

6:30 p.m.8:30 p.m.

Learn the ins and outs of creating a mural at your community garden. Murals and public art not only beautify neighborhoods, but they can deepen community connections and spark public dialogue. We'll hear from artists Raul Ayala, Claudie Mabry, and Brooke Singer, Jennifer Lantzas - Deputy Director of Public Art for NYC Parks, and community gardeners who have gone through the process of creating murals for their gardens. This event is co-hosted with Groundswell, a NYC-based organization which brings together youth, artists, and community organizations to use art as a tool for social change, for a more just and equitable world.

Hosted by Groundswell and GreenThumb
