If you are 14 to 21 years old and live in NYC you don’t want to miss out on this chance! Groundswell Community Mural Project is looking for individuals to help develop a design and then paint a large scale mural in Brooklyn. The head muralist for this project is Christopher Cardinale and the assistant muralist is Nicole Schulman.
The project is in part a response to the tragic death of 4 year old James Nyprie Rice, who was killed in a crosswalk while walking with his aunt at the intersection of Third Avenue and Baltic Street in Brooklyn, NY. This is a wonderful opportunity to work with the community in creating a mural that will not only change the physical landscape, but will foster social and political change as well.
Youths who live in the Gowanus neigborhood of Brooklyn are especially encouraged to apply. Don’t worry–the date has been extended to May 15th!
