Would You Like To Paint a Mural in the East Village?

July 29, 2013 | Julia Dawidowicz

Of course you would. First Street Green, a majestic art-and-garden-oasis tucked away in the chaos of the East Village right off Houston Street, is seeking artists to paint murals on the plywood walls of First Park. Ideas and volunteers are also welcome. More, from their website:

Each selected artist will be assigned a site within a designated sub-section of the panels. These panels will be repainted on a rotating basis, with an average duration of 2 to 3 months. Proposals can involve single sections or multiple section designs.

To be considered for this most sacred of art commissions next to painting the Bowery Wall, submit your design proposal via email by August 16th.
