Brooklyn’s Mural Movement

October 29 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$10

Before exterior walls were co-opted by faux-graffiti marketing and street art tours flooded the borough, Brooklyn fostered distinctive waves of mural-making by activist artists working with everyday neighbors. Go behind-the-scenes of this movement, and explore how today’s artists are continuing to forge community cohesion and retain a sense of place amid gentrification as Robyne Walker Murphy, Executive Director of Groundswell, moderates a conversation with Janet Braun Reinitz, muralist and author of On the Wall: Four Decades of Community Murals in New York CityRichard Green, Director of Crown Heights Youth Collective, and Joe Matunis, founder of El Puente’s Los Muralistas initiative.
