The summer street art events don’t stop. This Saturday was the 8th annual block party for the Welling Court Mural Project, bringing its yearly cycle of murals to the small neighborhood in Astoria, Queens. I was joined by fashion designer Sharufa Walker who brought her colorful style to a few of the colorful walls.
The Welling Court Mural Project started in 2009 when the small community in Astoria, Queens asked Ad Hoc Art gallery to bring public art to the neighborhood. It has since become one of the best spots for street art in the city, with a public gathering happening yearly. I attended the block party Saturday, along with fashion blogger Debbie Ruiz who was my model for the day.
