1,500 feet of fence. Fifty artists. Three days: On three weekends in August and September 2019, 50 Uptown artists came together to transform three blocks of fencing located adjacent to the 125th Street Metro-North station into a canvas for murals that support and uplift the community, and create a vibrant gateway to Harlem.
At the same time, the project brought Uptown artists together to create freely and legally in the public space. The call was open to any artist based in New York City, with preference given to artists with connections to Harlem, Upper Manhattan & the Bronx.
UPDATE: All available wall space has been allocated for this year. Click here to leave your info for future projects.
