Remember the Garment District Alliance ‘Call for Mural Artists’ in June? Well, The Garment District Alliance (GDA) announced today the launch of Inside Out: NY Together, a public art installation that will transform the wall outside the Port Authority Midtown Bus Terminal in the Garment District into a massive, 40-foot gallery featuring the diverse individuals that make up New York City.
Beginning on October 3, New Yorkers passing through the neighborhood can have their portraits taken, which will be printed in real-time and featured outside Port Authority’s iconic, major transportation hub in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Presented by GDA in collaboration with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), Inside Out: NY Togetherwill represent how New Yorkers come from all walks of life, and together, make the city one of the greatest in the world.
The Garment District Alliance (GDA) is inviting New Yorkers and visitors to Midtown Manhattan to experience a series of seven gigantic, origami-inspired sculptures as part of its latest public art exhibit, Hacer: Transformation, created by California artist Hacer.
