"Cloudy With A Chance Of Brownsville", 2022
NYCHA Howard Houses, Brownsville, Brooklyn, NY
This mural was one of 50 as part of the Mayor of NYC's "Bridging The Divide" program. Each artist selected to participate was tasked to create a 100-ft mural, including members of the local communities where the art would hang in the design process. My idea was to give the people something inspirational to look up to when they raised their heads to the sky--that inspiration was 25 digitally-painted portraits of teens, old buddies, moms, kids, dedicated seniors and even those considered riff-raff--as long as they were willing to take a photo for me, I promised them inclusion. Here is the mural installed and the original digital portraits.
