Railroad Park Mural Community Celebration in Melrose

October 13, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join WHEDco and DreamYard as we launch the Railroad Park mural, Bronx Tracks, a public art initiative on E. 161st Street, adjacent to the NYCHA Morrisania Air Rights building in Melrose, with support from NYC Parks and NYCHA. The vibrant, abstract mural by Bronx artist Diana Perea enlivens the Park and the commercial corridor, part of WHEDco’s effort to continue to enhance the neighborhoods surrounding our housing developments. It was installed by a team of young DreamYard artists and community volunteers.

With opening remarks by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and others, the event will feature music, resources by partner organizations, and activities for adults and children alike.
