ArtBridge is one of two organizations chosen for the City Canvas pilot program to beautify New York City by installing artwork on construction fencing. Throughout the next two years, ArtBridge will commission new works of art from the city’s pool of emerging talent. The program officially launched in September of 2019, and the first two murals appeared on 23rd Street between 10th Avenue and at 9th Avenue on the London Terrace Gardens building. All of the pieces take on different subject matter and styles. The photo above features Savory Haven by award – winning, Queens-based artist, Lisk Feng. Located on the scaffolding of the Tangram building in Flushing, Queens, the piece is intended as an homage to the people and foods of Flushing.
