BCS Helps Prepare for a Mural on the 177th Street Bridge

Preparing for a mural to go up on the 177th Street Bridge
On June 18, 2015, BCS Community Service was invited to participate in the first stages of a graffiti removal/mural project by priming the East 177th Street Bridge, between the Bronx River Parkway off-ramp and Park Avenue in the Bronx. We were prepping for Saturday June 20th, at which time an organization called Publicolor would come and do what they do best, creating cultural designs. This one of many projects put together nicely by Emily Colasacco, the ‎Director of Urban Art/Summer Streets at the NYC Department ofTransportation. Some of the pictures reflect the enthusiastic of BCS staff and clients. All supplies were provided by The Department of Transportation.

BCS is looking forward to keep doing this type of work with Emily Colasacco and her team.

Enjoy the Pictures!
