Program Description


We can trace the history of Mural art back to prehistoric cave painting. It played an important role in NYC since 1900 when an important Beaux Arts building like the Appellate Court House on Madison Square was so richly decorated with paintings complementing its architectural detail. Other examples are the Cunard building and Rockefeller Center, with its Mexican influence. The Depression Era saw an explosion of WPA murals in public buildings, including schools and post offices. There are still murals all over the city. The tradition is now firmly in the hands of international street artists who continue to teach us valuable lessons. Join us and take a peek at the Murals in the city!

Please be aware that there is no need to register more than once.
