Here are a few projects I have been a part of over the years.
Ecko Block Party, NYC
In 2005, Mark Ecko tried to hold a block party celebrating the urban artwork of graffiti. Although the city gave permission to hold this public party they then rescinded their permission when some local politicians objected to the theme matter. Ecko wound up going to court to protect his First Amendment rights, and won with ease. Some of New York's oldest and finest painters were invited to showcase their skills on replicas of NYC subways from a bygone era. No actual subway cars were harmed during the party. The replica subway cars were crafted by Metal Man Ed. You can view more of his handicraft at MetalManEd.com.
When Women Pursue Justice, Brooklyn, NY
When Women Pursue Justice was a mural collaboration conceived and organized by the ArtMakers in 2005. Lady Pink was one of 30+ women artists that painted portraits honoring the many women in history that have helped push human rights to the forefront. This massive mural was painted over the course of 2 months on the corner of Bedford and Nostrand Ave in Brooklyn. For more information on the ArtMakers please visit their site at: http://www.artmakersnyc.org. The mural's main portrait was of Shirley Chisholm in whose district the mural was located. Around 100 people attended the unveiling honoring a woman who wanted to be known as a catalyst for change.
Spring Street Mural , NYC
In December 2006, Wooster Collective organized a massive mural project inside 11 Spring St. They called together street artists, sticker kids and graffiti writers from around the world to cover the entire interior of a 5 story building, that was undergoing renovation, with artwork. This is Lady Pink's section on the 4th floor in her continuing theme of civil liberty abuse. You can find out more about this historic event at WoosterCollective.com.
