Inspired by French muralist Nelio, the site-specific Bronx Tracks was created by artist Diana Perea to run alongside the courthouse center at Morris Avenue, and the less trafficked blocks running to Elton Avenue. The large-scale, and colorful installation was designed to create a more pedestrian-friendly experience, and was installed by a team of young DreamYard artists along with volunteers. Entitled Bronx Tracks, the mural is present by WHEDco and The DreamYard Project, in partnership with the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), and will be on view to July, 2017. The mural is located at Railroad Park and East 161st Street in the South Bronx.
