The New York City Economic Development Corporation (EDC) recently teamed up with Groundswell, a non-profit organization that connects artists and local communities, to create a new mural in Bush Terminal Park to beautify the Sunset Park neighborhood. The theme of the mural is about accessing the waterfront, both the working, industrial aspects and its natural beauty. Brainstorming for the mural began when the EDC held a visioning session to talk about what the theme means to them, and the imagery that they believe must be represented.
The mural was unveiled on September 7 and can be accessed through the park entrance at 50th Street and First Avenue in Brooklyn.
