By Charlotte Robinson, May 21, 2019
NYC Pride the official host of WorldPride 2019 | Stonewall 50 has announced the WorldPride Mural Project initiative in collaboration with production & curating partners LISA Project NYC the founding partner, HSBC Bank & major supporter Macy’s. Both local & international artists, 50 in total were selected to create murals within the five boroughs of New York that reflect & honor the beauty, struggle & strides of the LGBTQ community. The initial set of murals are on display in Manhattan beginning at Arlo NoMad in Midtown. Now through mid-June the complete set of murals will be unveiled, culminating before the WorldPride 2019 | Stonewall 50 season commences & remaining intact throughout the duration of the month's celebration. Macy's is set to reveal their murals on June 6th in the windows of Macy’s Herald Square & will remain throughout June. Chris Frederick, Executive Director of NYC Pride stated, “Art, in all its forms, has always been an integral means of expression in the LGBTQIA+ community & particularly meaningful to the fabric of New York City’s culture. Street art is a poetic example of this expression & the 50 WorldPride muralists will, no doubt, combine beauty & poignant messaging at a time when our collective stories can be & must be told.” Buff Monster, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, Nomad Clan, Kunle Martins aka Earsnot IRAK Crew, Gianni Lee & STIK are just a few of the artists whose work will be highlighted as part of the WorldPride Mural Project.
