Moving Forward

Concrete jersey barriers become canvases for colorful designs making in-between spaces come to life with the implementation of four artist-designed murals in on 150 barriers in one weekend during the spring of 2010.


"Moving Forward," "NYCamo," "Food in Transit," and "Anchovies along the FDR Drive" were painted by more than 300 New York Cares volunteers on barriers lining pedestrian paths and bike lanes in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Manhattan.
