BED-STUY ALIVE! Celebration

October 8, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The detail from the "Alive" artwork seen here was conceived by Bernice E. Green for the October 2011 "Bed-Stuy Alive" event and designed by artist/photographer and Horace Mann art teacher Barry L. Mason who led Bed-Stuy residents of all ages in the open-air Fulton Street communal mural painting project. Several community, business and political leaders, including Councilman Al Vann and Assemblywoman Annette Robinson, also participated in the project during which Project Green certificates were distributed to all who lifted a brush.
