Fourth Arts Block Brings Second Installment of ArtUp
With the advent of spring comes a bevy of neighborhood street art.
Thanks to the efforts of Fourth Arts Block (“FAB”), four square blocks of East Village territory have collectively become a canvas for some new sanctioned street scribbling. This corridor of art is part of the four-year-old ArtUp initiative, a program which aims to “reinvigorate spaces through public art and community partnerships.”
Artist Alley @ Extra Place is in the spotlight, currently in the second round of sidewalk beautification. The artist tapped for the effort was Argentinian-born Sonni, who painted his colorful “Music Machine” on half the concrete slabs. It’ll hold court here until November.
