2018 Welling Court Recap

The Welling Court Mural Project began in 2009 after Jonathan Ellis, representing members of the Welling Court, Queens community, met at Ad Hoc Art’s Bushwick gallery, and invited Ad Hoc AKA Garrison Buxton to help envision a way to beautify their neighborhood.


Now in its 9th year, this street art event which takes place in Astoria, Queens NYC took place on June 9, 2018.


The Project now hosts over 150 murals by artists from around the corner and around the world, providing new arrays of visual experiences that change how people experience and interact with their environment. The Welling Court Mural Project is one of the best collections of contemporary street culture on earth, all within this hidden gem of NYC! Free and open to the public 24/7/365.


Enjoy our staff shots from the entire week of activity, both in progress and completed!
