Come play and make chalk murals on the street at the Green Corridor 182 Park(ing) Day event on W 182nd between Amsterdam and Audubon Ave in Manhattan. This event transforms the entire block between the school buildings of WHEELS and I.S. 143 to demonstrate the need for a healthier, safer and more engaging streetscape, building upon a student-led initiative for a “Clean Air Green Corridor” on W 182nd St. Street Lab will bring its PLAY NYC and Street Marker programs: PLAY NYC features a colorful obstacle course that offers safe, hands-free play for children on closed-off streets, and Street Marker offers a way for multiple people to make beautiful chalk patterns and murals together. Today we’ll be joined by City Artist Corps grant recipient, Beth Livensperger, who will lead students in making chalk murals, and we’ll also have Barnard College students leading chalking. Thanks to our many hosts in this location, NYC Public Design Commission, ASLA-NY, WHEELS, APA-NY, Friends of WHEELS, Spin, and NYC Planning.
Street Lab cultural programs are supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Additional support provided by NYC DOT and Con Edison Arts Al Fresco. Artist Beth Livensperger’s participation is made possible with funding from the New York City Artist Corps.
