Public arts access and education lie at the cornerstone of The Welling Court Mural Project. Bordering the Ferry Landing and the Ravenswood Houses in Astoria, New York, the Mural Project sprawls through the neighborhood and epitomizes the ethos of collaboration, galvanizing residents, business owners, and community members in a universally recognized cultural movement. Future documentation of the changing murals and urban landscape coupled with artist profiles and scholarly analysis will work to increase awareness and firmly cement this enclave’s status as an important cultural destination.
In October 2017, David Katzenstein and Gay Feldman began an ongoing collaboration with the project director and founder. Our efforts will help realize the production of commercially viable products and catalog, providing a limited income stream that will support the ongoing mural project.
