Artolution + East Village Students = a Gorgeous New Mural

 

 

Artolution

The non-profit group, Artolution and the students at PS 751 & Harvey Milk High School came together to create an incredible mural capturing their diversity and individuality.  We were thrilled to come across it, and wanted to share a few pictures we took today.

Initial drawings created by the 60 students from 751M, the Manhattan School for Career Development and the neighboring Harvey Milk High School, were the inspiration for the mural.

At the center is a 3-D phoenix-shaped portion, fashioned from recycled objects, painted and used as percussion instruments named ‘birdstruments.

The mural, located at 113 East 4th Street between First and Second Avenues, was created by the students with the assistance of Artolution, a community-based public art organization with a social justice focus, and the law firm Paul Hastings LLP, which helped finance the mixed-media project.
