The focus of the Public Mural Hall (PMH) Program is the practice of painting and public art murals. Beyond the PMH, the second component of LP’s Public Mural Program extends outside the gallery walls and serves to create opportunities for artists to show their work on the streets of our neighborhood, Long Island City. By forging relationships with those who have walls (business owners, real estate developers) LP is ensuring a place remains for the public artist in NYC.
