PS/MS 34: I Am Loisaida

Featuring Art Direction by Sam Wisneski & Leslie Rios, with Crash (Manhattan 2016)

The Lower East Side neighborhood of Loisaida is known for its famed murals and the artists who create them. It’s also the birthplace of Thrive Collective and our School Murals program at PS/MS 34 in 2007. We were delighted to return with a second mural project in 2016 — this time exploring the neighborhood’s cultural identity on the focal wall behind the stage in the auditorium.

Thrive Collective’s first school mural project, before we were known as Thrive Collective, was the Dream Walls in the schoolyard of PS/MS 34.

Enjoy the finished product.
