Outside of P.S. 69 Journey Prep School in Soundview, Bronx, a 7,200 square asphalt mural designed by artist Carla Torres was completed just as November ended. Entitled “The World is Our Oyster,” this is one of the largest murals the New York City Department of Transportation’s Art Program has ever completed through the Asphalt Art Activations initiative. The work was inspired by the area surrounding the school, as well as the students themselves.
