In 2008, I was asked by the New York Junior League to create a mural at Tony Dapolito Rec Center in Soho. I was so excited because this historic recreation center also houses one of Keith Haring's murals. Lady Liberty is on the second floor basketball courts overlooking the pool where Keith's masterpiece swims across the wall sheltering the pool from the streets of New York.
After nearly a decade, it's time to touch up the art!
Anyone want to volunteer to come help me on Sunday, May 20th from 10am til 2pm? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
