This weekend I was fortunate to attend the third annual Welling Court Mural Project in Astoria Queens.  It was a gorgeousSaturday afternoon, hints of aerosol wafted on the breeze, and over 50 artists were spread out over a several block area bordered by a community garden and a culturally diverse neighborhood. The project evolved when community leaders who were interested in finding a way to beautify the area were
introduced to the Ad Hoc Gallery, formerly in Bushwick.  The gallery represents a top tier roster of national and international street artists. The resulting blend of outstanding street 
art and a supportive community has resulted in one of the most dynamic collections of 
this art form in the city today.
