We’ve teamed up with UR NEW YORK to create a jaw-dropping collab telling the tale of ABC NO RIO and the Lower East Side. Your vote will bring the mural to life on Delancey Street as part of the proposed History Tribute Fence. Above is the design comp.

From the proposal:

We have collaborated to create a memorable installation that focuses on a once squat, now artist haven- ABC NO RIO. This place has represented artists and community for decades.

We chose to dedicate our piece to ABC as it is now in the stages of becoming a state of the art space. Our depiction shows various angles of the original building to preserve what was before it becomes what will be. Boogie & UR NY represent community with art and words. ABC does the same for so many who don’t have outlets like we do. Truly no better way to pay homage to our beloved LES past & present.

A panel of judges will determine the winner, but you can vote (if you login) using Facebook, Twitter or Gmail.

The reward is this:

Each side of the fence that will be wrapped is approximately 200’ long, therefore the expected length of this project should span approximately 400’. These fences are located at one of the busiest traffic corridors in all of Manhattan, along the Williamsburg Bridge entrance where nearly 111,000 vehicles and over 200,000 sets of eyes drive by daily. The fences are chain link and approximately 8’ high.

This is art you’ll see all the time. Let your voices be heard! We thank you in advance for helping us express ourselves.
