Los Muralistas de El Puente are painting a mural on the side of MS 50 about the People's History of Los Sures. The MS 50 El Puente Community School Mural Project is a result of a two year-long formalized partnership between MS 50 and its Community School partner, El Puente. The idea for the mural project grew out of the MS 50 El Puente Community School’s mission to promote youth leadership through academics, arts, athletics, and activism and to empower student voice by providing opportunities for students to engage in inquiry-based and project-based learning.
Los Muralistas de El Puente are an inter-generational artist collective serving the community of Los Sures (Williamsburg Brooklyn's Southside) since 1990. Under the leadership of teaching artist Joe Matunis, the Muralistas have created more than 20 community murals, which have been documented in numerous books on public art and community voices.
Join us for a celebration of El Puente's 34th anniversary at our Community Painting Day!
