The North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition has announced the artists selected to participate in the India Street Mural Project. Six local artists, whose proposals best “captured the essence of the site as public art space, as well as the unique character of community,” were chosen to install a new public mural on an India Street building, between West Street and the East River.
The next public meeting will be held May 11th at 6:30pm at 303 Grand to discuss possible locations for future projects and any other ideas and suggestions the public may bring.

Joshua Abram Howard, Super Duper Sound System

Robert Seng, Knock Knock
In this mysterious and inviting interplay between the two walls that enclose India Street, Seng’s Knock Knock invites the viewer into a conversation about the doors that are sealed and those that remain hidden from view.
