You’re Invited to It’s My Pier Day!

On Saturday, July 23rd from 2-6pm, you are invited to It’s My Pier Day! 

Because of construction delay, Paths to Pier 42 will continue programming at the Pier 42 temporary park throughout the summer of 2016. Join us for the first public event of the season, to celebrate and make Pier 42 a greener and more welcoming place.

It’s My Pier Day activities:

  • General clean-up of the site
  • Learn how to wheat paste with artist Sonia Louise Davis, and help install an exhibit of neighborhood portraits from her 2014 project, The People’s Poster Project
  • Legends of Loisaida: Legendary Loisaida mural artist Chico is working with Vision Urbana, Inc. and local teens from their Empire Mentorship Initiative and Teen Center to create portraits of influential community leaders. Come see them in action as they create one of their murals at Pier 42!
  • Paint benches, picnic tables and planters
  • Planting, weeding and mulching

We will have volunteer opportunities for all ages and skill levels to participate, hope to see you there!

If have any questions, please contact Anna Pelavin at anna@hesterstreet.org.
