One thing you can always count on New York City for is the year-round plethora of public art. The latest installations that have caught the attention of our creatives at VPM are the murals taking over Dean Street in Brooklyn. An 800-foot construction wall along Dean Street between Carlton Street and Vanderbilt Avenue has become an eyesore for residence of the community and anyone who comes across it. In attempts to avoid any protests against the construction site, developers have elicited the help of Brooklyn street artist and creator of Broad City’s opening credits, Mike Perry. With 10 local artists, he curated a selection of murals to cover sections of the 16-foot tall walls of the construction site. Has the project help quiet the community’s cries against the construction site and its massively hideous walls? So far, no complaints!
