Join the North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition and Moviehouse for an interactive screening of How The Mural Got Made at the India Street Mural on Tuesday, September 8.
The new-painted mural will literally come alive when six local filmmakers Lam Thuy Vo, Joshua Carrero, Sarah Pirozek, Vanara Taing, Nathan Punwar, Hiram Becker, and Chris King present the movies they created to capture the artists—Ali Aschman, Eve Biddle & Josh Frankel, Chris Soria, Joshua Abram Howard, Robert Seng, and Skewville—as they spent the month of June turning a common white wall into a master work of public art.
Each of the wall’s four empty spaces will simultaneously turn into a screen, inviting the audience into the world of the artists. After the screenings the filmmakers and artists will speak with each other and the audience about the creative process that went into creating the mural and the films. VJ Clay Franklin will open and close the show with his visual beats and graphics.
It’s all projected on the mural at the end of India Street (between West Street and the East River in Greenpoint, Brooklyn) in a free interactive environment with a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline. The India Street Mural Project is the kickoff project for North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition (NbPac) and presented with Council Member David Yassky. It is part of a greater urban revitalization for India Street, the waterfront, and the surrounding neighborhood. The event is part of a four night screening series called Moviehouse on India Street featuring projections by filmmakers, animators, and documentarians from Brooklyn and beyond.
The project is funded by Broadway Stages and presented in partnership with Open Space Alliance. Additional support is provided by Che Bushwick.
