Below please find one of the murals that was painted as part of our mural project.

As you may or may not know we had permission from the store owner but the property owner (who lives on Long Island) contacted us after it was done and stated that members of the community objected to it and because we did not have his permission he required us to paint it over.

Also below please find what the location looks like today. (obcenities altered)

The site has been this way for at least the last 3 months.

We have learned from this mistake and we would like to ask any property owner if they would want a mural painted on their property.

We are offering school groups or local artists $500 for small murals and $1,000 for larger murals.

We have already been in contact with South Shore and South Shore Babe Ruth Little Leagues about replacing graffiti at their sites with murals.

See link below for pictures of these locations and others that we will be cleaning up.

Once the weather warms up we will be out with volunteers to clean up these sites and then hopefully we will be able to get a few artists to submit designs and paint these murals.

Two murals that we have painted have not been victims of graffiti for over 2 years.

If you would like to be part of this program or would like to sponsor a mural please contact us at 718-619-2371.
