We’ve been following the Downtown ‘Mural Project‘ in and around the 2WTC and 3WTC construction lots, now surrounded by a number of gorgeous new murals. With the Oculus in the background, the large-scale mural project takes viewers from Vesey and Greenwich Streets, down Church and Dey Streets to Cortlandt Street.
Let’s take a walk….
The above image, by @Stickymonger is one of the window murals in 3 World Trade Center, now under construction.
Tourists and locals have been in selfie-heaven. In the image above, by artist Ben Angotti aka @angotti81, you will notice a dancer filming herself ~ hula hoop in hand, with the colorful mural behind her.
The artists chosen for this project will cover the front of the large steel sheds, and wide tarps, with their signature work, bringing to this solemn site a message for a hopeful future.
Next to Ben Angotti is Ian Ferguson aka @hydeon, above and below.

And as the artists have celebrated our City with their murals, there is a wall along a walkway next to 18 Church Street, that celebrates the artists who created what Larry Silverstein calls “A Masterpiece in the Sky” at 4 World Trade Center’s 69th Floor, a project curated by World Trade Gallery’s owner, Doug Smith.
