The 4th Annual Welling Court Mural Project hosted by Ad Hoc Art is almost upon us. Since 2009, The Ad Hoc Gallery has been sprucing up the Welling Court community with a series of murals wrapping around the Astoria, Queens neighborhood with the goal of creating a destination for art seekers to enjoy great works while instilling pride for the surroundings that present new opportunities for community interaction. Check out Martha Cooper’s blog on 12oz for an article on the success of last year’s project and to view her photos from the 2012 festivities as she wandered the streets with camera in hand.
A Kickstart fundraiser has gone up and perks for contributors range from $10 sticker packs to $75 Ian Kuali’i Spraycans. Prints from Col Wallnuts, Kimyon Huggins and GILF! all for a less than $100 contribution. The perks for affluent donors will get you up close with Lady Pink with a 3 hour graffiti session for $500, or for $1000, a Lady Pink Mural for your home, and if you have a few thousand dollars to spare, you can have your likeness used in her next mural / canvas and live forever through art.
