Yesterday’s photo of the day sort of pointed it out, but I’ll reiterate it; the India Street Mural Project is now complete. Yep, that’s right, all the hard work the North Brooklyn Public Arts Commission put in to help beautify a desolate Greenpoint block has paid off, and to celebrate the group is having a launch party this Saturday. The event will kick off at 2:15 pm Saturday afternoon with a “press conference and ribbon cutting ceremony with David Yassky.” In addition, Japanther, Ninja Sonik and others will be taking the stage, while local favorites Cafecito Bogota, Plates & Records and the just opened Cookie Road will be on hand serving food. Oh, and you’ll be able to take in the spectacular street art of Ali Aschman, Eve Biddle & Joshua Frankel, Joshue Abram Howard, Robert Seng, Skewville and Chris Soria.
For more details, read the NBPAC’s press release.
According to its mission statement, “The India Street Mural Project is the kickoff project for North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition (NbPac) and is part of a greater urban revitalization for India Street, the waterfront, and the surrounding neighborhood. It is our hope that these deserted, industrial streets be re-claimed by the community and surrounding neighborhoods.”
