Our first (of two) Summer Intensive 2016 featured a second consecutive Coney Art Walls mural project art directed by Chris Daze Ellis. Daze’s “Cycloptic Merman” concept revolves around a central figure that blends two iconic Coney Island characters, surrounded by vignettes depicting Coney Island traditions and culture. Daze invited our students, interns, and teaching artists to design the vignettes and gave them creative control over their concepts. The resulting collaborative piece is a show-stopper.
Enjoy the finished mural.
Our summer students crushed it.
