Public Art Project on View at Fulton and Chelsea-Elliott Houses, The NYCHA Journal

A new outdoor public art exhibition, “Intertwining Colors,” is now on view across 370 feet of construction scaffolding at Fulton Houses and Chelsea-Elliott Houses. The art features hand-painted murals with portraits of 60 residents from both NYCHA developments.

“Intertwining Colors” is part of an ongoing artist fellowship program, “Bridging the Divide,” through ArtBridge, a non-profit arts organization, in partnership with NYCHA, and made possible through the City Canvas pilot program. The pilot is an initiative of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs to allow visual art to be installed temporarily onto scaffolding to improve the pedestrian experience and increase opportunities for artists to present art relevant to the communities where it is installed.
