Public Art Project Launches at Red Hook Houses, The NYHCA Journal

Red Hook Houses is the first NYCHA campus to host a new public art project that repurposes temporary construction fencing and sidewalk sheds into a wide range of large-scale photography, digital print works, murals, and mixed-media art installations to improve the pedestrian experience and increase opportunities for artists.

Red Hook’s new art is thanks to a multi-part series of artist fellowships through the City Canvas pilot program, an initiative of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
