In June, the Longwood section of the Bronx became a little brighter and more colorful. Students from PS 333 and 335 worked together on a shared schoolyard mural that offers a glimpse into how they see their neighborhood and how it shapes their identity. For six weeks, students from six classes in the building — three classes from each school — joined us in the yard to help paint the mural, along with dozens of volunteers on Saturdays. The results were fantastic.

Creating and completing the mural.

I Am Longwood Arts Fest

To celebrate the completion of the mural and to recognize the storied history of art in the Bronx, various community and art-based organizations joined the celebration and hosted the first ever “I Am Longwood Arts Fest” on June 4.
