RiseBoro Community Partnership is excited to launch Bushwick's first Community Artist Project: Public Art commissioned for Bushwick by Bushwick. RiseBoro is proud to contribute to the cultural and creative environments of Bushwick and to continue celebrating our local traditions of Public Art.
The three artists/art collectives that were selected for CAP all have long-term ties to Bushwick and have long celebrated the creative expressions of our community. RiseBoro developed CAP as an intentional Community Initiative focused on providing opportunity and support for the longstanding creative Bushwick community. CAP is a unique local opportunity, calling together RiseBoro residents, RiseBoro staff, our built environment and our creative community, to develop Public Art works which showcase the proud and diverse talents of Bushwick's artists.
CAP Art installation will commence around Bushwick in the early summer of 2015. Mural locations and artists in action can be visited during installation. Bushwick artists who were selected for funding and support from RiseBoro through our CAP initiative have developed large scale images that reflect the diverse culture, history and experiences of the Bushwick Community. CAP 2015 Public Art themes include Tenants' Rights/No Buy Outs, an intergenerational day in the park, and traditional Bushwick homes and domestic scenes.
