CHEER UP, FOLKS! Despite these “worst of times,” art seems to be flourishing. See these colorful works from the talented artists who are creating lively, if ephemeral, bright spots all around our neighborhood.
From Sam Mercado’s regular contributions, marking high days and holidays at D’Agostino, at 790 Greenwich Street (between West 12th and Bethune Streets).
To unexpected murals by the Brazilian street artists OS GEMEOS (twin brothers Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo) depicting break dancers on the walls surrounding the empty lot at 143 West 14th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues) – until construction starts, at least!
And the upbeat message from artist JASON NAYLOR at the southwest corner of 16th Street and 6th Avenue.
