Yesterday, members of the Welling Court neighborhood in Queens and a veritable who’s who of the street & graffiti world came together via Ad Hoc Art for a day of eating, dancing, painting & pasting. Wanting to beautify their neighborhood walls and enliven their surroundings, the ethnically diverse melting pot welcomed artists representing over 50 years of the street art movement to do the job. Participating artists include: Alice Mizrachi, Beast, Chris Mendoza, Chris Stain, Celso, Cern, Cey Adams, CR, Cycle, Dan Witz, Darkclouds, Daryll Peirce, Don Leicht, Free5, Gaia, Garrison & Alison Buxton, Greg Lamarche, John Fekner, Lady Pink, Leon Reid, Matt Siren, Michael De Feo, Mr. Kiji, Pablo Power, Peripheral Media Projects, R. Nicholas Kuszyk, Ron English, Royce Bannon, Sofia Maldonado, Swoon, TooFly, Tristan Eaton, and Veng RWK.
If you want to see the walls for yourself, a searchable address is 11-98 Welling Court, Queens, NY 11102. The project begins at the intersection of Welling Court, 30th Avenue and 12th Street and extends north along 30th Avenue and then east along Main Avenue, across the street from the Two Coves Community Garden.
