Hello to all our mural supporters, We have some good news and some news that is requiring an extra-ordinary amount of patience! The good news:  See more

THE STORY:

We the People! The Hell's Kitchen 45th- 46th Street community is raising funds to recreate the beloved historic mural, "Against Domestic Colonialism", a 60' x 65' mural painted by the late artist Arnold Belkin. The mural was painted by Belkin and the community in 1973 at a time when the city was in civil unrest. Belkin created this now historic mural as a message from the people to draw attention to the condition of the times. In addition to the historic value and the poignancy of the message to our times today, this mural is the last remaining mural by Belkin in the United States. The wall and the mural have fallen in a state of disrepair due to the years of damage caused by weather and neglect. We are asking for your help in donated funds to recreate our beloved mural. Please come by the park to see the mural - we are sure you will see the urgency to act now to repair the wall making sure we do not lose this important piece of NYC history. Your donation would be so very appreciated by the community and by the Arnold Belkin legacy.
