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.

Support Over Under & Other’s European Adventure

Recent ex-New Yorker and all-around renaissance man Over Under (aka Erik Burke) needs your help to get his next venture rolling!

I first came across Erik’s work via his Small Worlds project in the summer of 2008:

nevs' small graffiti doors

I had the pleasure of meeting him shortly thereafter, when he helped Broken Crow complete a large mural in Bushwick:

broken crow + paint goggles + over under

What never ceases to amaze me are the sheer number of projects Erik juggles at once. While completing his MFA in Design and Technology at Parsons last year, he found time to collaborate with New York based and visiting artists as well as install a faux memorial plaque on the legendary Writers Bench and code a tribute to the golden days of NYC subway graffiti.

For an exhibition at MOHS in Copenhagen this spring, Erik and Canadian artist Other plan on cycling across Europe, gathering material and inspiration for the show along the way. To that end, they are trying to raise $2,000 to cover “travel expenses related to sustenance, survival, and the creation of work”. You can read about their plans and donate here. I’ve already put my money where my mouth is and I encourage you to do the same. Not only are you supporting a good cause, but you’re also helping two genuinely talented artists make their marks.
