Artists Stick Together with ‘We Are All Bowery’

Posted on: September 28th, 2020 at 5:03 am by

Hard hit by the pandemic and protests, an art initiative is underway to assuage the struggles currently happening on the Bowery.

The “We Are All Bowery” project is helmed by Inside Change From Within, an endeavor supported in part by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. The goal of this project is a seemingly simple one: to boost morale for those who are a part of the Bowery community – homeless residents, businesses, galleries, museums, and community and cultural organizations. In so doing, it is hoped that a tighter sense of community manifests.

Posters will be hung along the northern section of the Bowery (Cooper Union to Delancey Street), and residents are encouraged to rally around the “We Are All Bowery” theme, and subsequently create their own posters to hang.

The initiative kicks off today at 11:30am, starting at Cooper Union and working its way down the Bowery.
