The project hopes to identify and honor the people of our Brooklyn community who continue to work everyday in the face of the COVID-19 crisis to ensure that we are all safe and taken care of. 6 Artists/members of Los Muralistas have been commissioned to paint 60 portraits that will be displayed collectively in Domino Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. There are those on the official list of essential workers, but we know there are many who are working hard to support and care for families, neighbors and community to include artists who make life better in hard times. We are all essential and together we will keep hope alive and our communities strong! If you know someone you would like to honor with a portrait in this project please message Joe Matunis for more details…………..
