Public art installations are the talk of the town this week with the beautiful Industry City facade and the Coney Island Walls unveiling.
If you’re into public murals and art displays, you’re in luck this week. A mural which was commissioned for this years NYCxDesign festival was unveiled on 2nd Avenue and 37th Street this past week. London based artist, Camille Walala has said that her inspiration for the building comes from the Memphis Design Movement and artists involved in the Op Art Movement. The seven story building is the artists largest installation ever and brings a pop of color to a rather neutral palette on 2nd Ave.
Coney Island has also unveiled their 2018 Art Walls. The program, which has been a part of Coney Island culture now for four years is an “outdoor museum of street art” and features live music and other entertainment all summer long. This years installation features 35 walls touching on various different themes.
The walls were unveiled on May 25th and the goal is to help revitalize Coney Island by attracting visitors. The walls are located near the historic boardwalk which make it a convenient and fun activity to do this summer! You can check out more information about the walls here.
