Coney Art Walls, the creation of Thor Equities CEO Joseph Sitt, has 21 new wall projects for the 2016 season. According to the outdoor gallery’s website, all of the walls will be completed in time for the Mermaid Parade scheduled for June 18.
The site, which opened Friday of the Memorial Day weekend, now features the work of artists Nina Chanel Abney, John Ahearn, Aiko, Crash, Timothy Curtis, Gaia, London Police, and Sam Vernon among many others. The bold and vibrant murals—curated by Sitt and Jeffrey Deitch—are situated at 3050 Stillwell Avenue in Brooklyn.
Last summer was the site’s inaugural season and Sitt, who owns the property of the site, announced that he has larger scale ideas for the site long-term in an interview with Jeanine Ramirez, a reporter for Time Warner Cable News NY1.
