42. NYC Mural Arts Project for Mental Health

Feeling All Four Seasons, Bridging All Four Seasons” by artist Julia Cocuzza and members of Baltic Street, AEH, Inc., will be installed on PS 24K at 427 38th St. in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. 

The NYC Mural Arts Project  aims to erase the stigma of mental illness while enhancing the physical environment of New York City’s communities through beautiful, collaborative, murals. Two new murals will be unveiled this month in Sunset Park, Brooklyn and Graniteville, Staten Island. The designs were developed by local artists in collaboration with neighborhood residents, people with mental health conditions, and peer specialists through a series of public events and weekly workshops in the community. The murals were even partially painted by community members at two community paint-fests.

The first mural, Feeling All Four Seasons, Bridging All Four Seasons is by artist Julia Cocuzza and members of Baltic Street, AEH, Inc. It will be installed on PS 24K at 427 38th St. in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The second mural, We are a Connected Community is by artist Alice Mizrachi and members of Venture House, and will be installed on PS 22 1860 Forest Avenue in Graniteville, Staten Island.
