Recently kicking off its seventh annual showcase of outdoor murals by street art’s biggest names, the Welling Court Mural Project bills itself as “one of the best collections of contemporary street culture on earth” for good reason. Since 2009, the Project has put up some 140 murals by artists from around the world. Covering a multi-block section along Welling Court in Astoria, Queens, the Project is a collaboration between the Ad Hoc Art Collective of Bushwick and the local community. The artists on view span a total of 50 years of street art history, from such graffiti pioneers as DAZE and CRASH to the members of youth development organization Cre8tive YouTh*ink. If you’re interested in checking it out, you can learn more here. If you like, on weekends this summer you can take the free LIC Art Bus to nearby Socrates Sculpture Park.
