Party with Safe Harbors this Weekend...One Mural Down, 4 to Go! and Community Cleanup
Newburgh, NY―On Saturday, May 12, 2012 Safe Harbors of the Hudson & the Ritz Theater (107 Broadway) will celebrate the completion of Transcendence by Dasic Fernandez, the first mural in the Newburgh Mural Project’s Life in Colors public art series.
- 8:30 AM - Community Cleanup registration (111 Broadway)
- 12:30PM - Hip Hop Seasons Performance and BBQ (corner of Liberty and Broadway)
- 1:30PM - Ceremony for Mural Unveiling (Ritz Theater 111 Broadway, Newburgh)
The mission of the Newburgh Mural Project is to inspire the growth of arts and culture in the community by transforming public spaces into public works of art celebrating the City of Newburgh’s spirit and vibrancy.
Transcendence captures the way in which the arts, like the human spirit, extends beyond all boundaries and exceeds the limits of ordinary experience unifying all things “day and night, darkness and light” into one. The mural was made possible by the generous support of the Institute for International Education (with the Ford Foundation), the Church Communities Foundation, the Ralph E. Ogden Foundation and anonymous support.
