Uptown Grandscale Mural Project is back! Uptown Grand Central has unveiled canvas fencing extending all the way to Third Avenue, kicking-off the opening of our City with color and fun. In this second edition of Uptown Grandscale, murals will be painted in May and June, with this part of the project completed by June 30, 2021.
Neighbors are invited to join in on a Community Mural on Saturday, June 5th. Artist Gera Lozano aka #geraluz has mapped out about 80-feet of fencing ~ follow her lead, add some color and have some fun! Register Here.
Uptown Grandscale 2019 brought 50 artists together to transform 1,500 feet of fencing across a three block area along 125th Street and adjacent streets along Park Avenue over three weekends that summer.
This year, Uptown Grand Central will once again bring mural artists together, with a canvas that will stretch from Fifth Avenue to Third Avenue, along 125th Street (the old Pathmark lot). Each panel is approximately four-feet wide by eight-feet tall. We look forward to tagging along and posting what we see.

The Let’s Paint! Community Mural and more on Saturday, June 5, 2021 ~ below
Wow ~ it’s more than 90 degrees out there today, but friends & neighbors, along with local artists ~ cans & brushes in hand ~ were painting! Above and below, East 125th Street, corner of 125th Street and Lexington Avenue, looking east.
The wooden canvas is one-square-city-block, now an empty lot where Pathmark once stood.
Moving further east, we walked to Third Avenue, turning south ~ we found Geo “Bowz” Rodriguez aka @geobany (below) half-way through a beautiful and very thoughtful mural.
Getting a closer look (below) @geobany. We’ll go back next week to update this.
Rounding the corner on 124th Street (between Third Avenue & Lexington) we found one of our favorite street artists, @AdamBombNYC, who you will remember from #100GatesProject East Harlem, 2017-18, and an old favorite on the El Barrio Guerrilla Wall on 116th Street.
Just beginning her panel, we were thankful to catch Sandy Perez chalking out her initial sketch. She shared what it will be ~ and we’re looking forward to going back early next week to catch her progress.
Continuing on 124th Street, we found Mark A. West aka @HouseOfMarkWest between Park and Madison Avenues (below).
Back up to 125, we found Mark Muster aka @markmusters1 working on five panels between Madison and Park Avenues (below).
and taking a closer look…..
Continuing east, we crossed Park Avenue and caught up with LostCreedCulture.
Just a few panels east we found Evan Bishop, who collaborated on the BLAZAYNY panel ~ working on his own panel, below. Find Evan Bishop Art on Instagram.
This will be a fun summer, filled with art stretching from Madison Avenue to Third Avenue, between 124th and 125th Streets.
