SOAR: Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, December 2020

“City Canvas’’ is a 24-month pilot designed to allow the installation of temporary visual art on eligible sidewalk sheds and construction fences. We’ve worked with local communities to transform protective construction structures into spaces for temporary art installations. This is a partnership with The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), in collaboration with the New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) and the Office of the Mayor.

“SOAR” is a 20-foot wide mural by interdisciplinary artist Voodo Fé

This mural was installed onto construction fencing in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, at the Fulton Street and Downing Street intersection on Thursday, December 10th, 2020. 

Voodo Fé’s large-scale mural features a hand-painted eagle made from an array of vibrant colors to depict the diversity of the world, inspiring us to rise above all odds.
