Welling Court Needs Your Help

Since 2009, Ad Hoc Art has organized and executed four large-scale mural projects at Queen’s Welling Court. More than 80 local and international artists have contributed hundreds of murals, sculptures and installations to the neighborhood. This endeavor requires enormous time, effort and a small army of volunteers to pull off every year… and lots and lots and lots and lots of paint. If you enjoy any of this fine work – on display for all to see, 24/7, 365 days a year and free of corporate sponsorship – please consider donating to the Welling Court Mural Project on Indiegogo.

This past weekend’s third iteration of the Welling Court block party, organized by the tireless Alison and Garrison Buxton, was a huge success. The total number of walls now painted in this corner of Astoria has almost reached 100! Here’s a small taste of what went down on Saturday…
