The Welling Court Mural Project began after Jonathan and Josh Ellis, representing the Welling Court community, met at Ad Hoc Art’s Bushwick gallery in 2009. They loved the experience nd invited Ad Hoc Art to bring their expertise, appreciation, and vision to beautify their Queens neighborhood. It was a perfect fit, as there were surfaces to be painted and Ad Hoc knew people loved painting surfaces. Jonathan had already planted the seeds and acquired permission to paint, which was key. Thus, having the community support and a timely visit by Poland’s wall-crushing M-City, the first mural was painted in the freezing temperatures of December 2009. Ad Hoc Art used the rest of the winter to plan the launch of the first multi-block project of over 40 murals that occurred in May 2010. After continuing to hit the pavement and meet more members of the community, the project grew one mural at a time.

It is one of the best collections of contemporary street culture on earth, all within this hidden gem of NYC! It is on pubic streets, so it is FREE and open to the public 24/7/365.
