Welling Court Mural Project 2014- #BringBackOurGirls Wall Collaboration with Danielle Mastrion
Girls and women all over the world deserve to be treated with love and respect and to be able to safely educate themselves, not to be used pawns or treated like cattle by terrorists and abusers. We hope this wall can bring hope and joy as well as attention to women's rights.
The "Lower East Side Heroines" Project
This project is a series of 7 spray murals I created to depict women from the 1700s to today who represent some of the amazing history, nationalities, and movements that have made the Lower East Side of Manhattan such a rich tapestry of culture.
Catherine Ferguson a freed slave and founder of Sunday schools in the late 1700s early 1800s, Hellcat Maggie a daughter of Irish Immigrants, member of the Dead Rabbits and first female Gang Member during the 5 Points Days of the 1850s, The Russ sisters of Russ & Daughters representing the hard working Jewish women of the early 20th centurey, Ellen Stewart founder of LaMaMa Theater and incredible East Village personality, Debbie Harry lead singer of Blondie and icon of the punk and graffiti culture that exploded downtown in the 70s and 80s, Rosario Dawson neighborhood girl turned starlet and philanthropist representing the Loisaida, and lastly my daughter Roxy Beckwith (we call her Roxy Bella) who was born and grew up on Pitt & Rivington for the first 3 years of her life representing the future generations of the Lower East Side.
Please read the explanation and bio of each picture to learn who these heroines were and what they represent.
You will also see some images from the process of creating these as well.
