MEDIA ADVISORY – Friday, June 17, 2011

AD HOC ART CONTINUES MAJOR PUBLIC MURAL PROJECT COMPRISING 58+ INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS REPRESENTING OVER 50 YEARS OF STREET ART

– An Art Event Celebrating the Streets, Solidarity, Community, and Culture –

WHAT: The community of Welling Court in Queens, New York first asked Ad Hoc Art to help them spruce up their neighborhood in 2009.  Ad Hoc Art was honored to do so and rose to the occasion in May 2010 organizing a project fitting for the diverse, enthusiastic, and energetic inhabitants.  Now, a year later, Ad Hoc has assembled another spectacular crew of legendary and groundbreaking artists spanning more than 50 years of activity for the 2nd Annual Welling Court Mural Project.  The project has received remarkable global acclaim since its launch and continues to garner support as more walls, artists, and enthusiasts augment that success.

This second round is not to be missed as we bring ever-more art and eyes to this Queens gem.  To celebrate, the community’s annual block party coincides with the project’s opening, featuring cuisine and music from the ethnically diverse and multi-talented hosts.  Whereas this tiny neighborhood is providing some major hospitality, it cannot provide for thousands of people, so please:

* think of it as a big social picnic potluck art fun action and bring some of your favorite tasty foods, beverages, or other contribution to share with your fellow revelers.

** if you would like to offer help or assistance to the artists, items always useful are: exterior bucket paint, paint rollers/brushes, spray paint, acrylic paint, exterior primer, etc.

The project transforms several city blocks into a 24/7 street-level gallery, bringing art from around the world directly to the heart of this community.  Renowned artists with deep roots in the street movement have created site-specific works for this project and many will showcase various creative sundries for your perusal.  This new array of visual experiences provides fresh contexts for how people working, visiting, and living in this diverse cultural gem of Queens think about and interact with their environment.

Artists include: Alice Mizrachi, Ashley Jane Laird, Alison Buxton, Beau Stanton, Bunnie Reiss, Caleb Neelon, Chris Mendoza, Chris Stain, Celso, Cern, Chor Boogie, Cicelia Ross-Gotta, CR, Cycle, Dan Witz, Darkclouds, Dave Loewenstein, Don Leicht, El Kamino, Ellis Gallagher, Ezra Li Eismont, Free5, Fumero, Garrison Buxton, Greg Lamarche, Jesse Jones, JMR, Joe Iurato, John Ahearn, John Fekner, Jordan Seiler, Katie Yamasaki, Lady Pink, Leon Reid, Matt Siren, Mensen, M-City, Michael Alan, Michael De Feo, MIMEO, Mr. Kiji, OverUnder, Pablo Power, Peat Wollaeger, R. Nicholas Kuszyk, Remi Rough, Richard Nugent, ROA, Ron English, Royce Bannon, Sinned, Sofia Maldonado, Stormie Mills, Sweet Toof, TooFly, Tristan Eaton, Veng RWK, Zam, and more.

In addition to the murals and festivities, there are special events and artist’s projects happening throughout the day.

DJ’s A to the K & Painted blend especially sublime block party beats to tickle your eardrums and keep you moving all day long.  Bring your dancing shoes and prepare for shaking some body parts.
