Weekday Sketchers at Greenacres Park 

plus two Korba Murals

We were washed out on May 15th but the weather forecast for May 22nd is for a beautiful spring day.  Let's do what we couldn't do last week!

This week's outing proves that good things come in small packages!  

 Imagine stepping off the busy streets of Midtown Manhattan into a green oasis that masks the noise and congestion of one of the world's busiest cities.  Then imagine just looking up at two soaring art installations by a world renowned artist, not in a museum but right on the streets of Manhattan.   Join us this week as we do just that! 

We will first meet at 780 3rd Avenue to take in the two giant murals by Eduardo Korba: "Genius is to Bike Ride" and "The Brave of 9/11".  You might not know this artist by name, but if you have been on the streets of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or even Jersey City, you have seen his enormous colorful murals.  Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and influenced by the hip-hop culture, he has installed more than 500 murals in cities around the world.  This week we will celebrate his work in our sketchbooks.

Then we will walk a few block away to one of the oldest and most successful vest pocket parks in NYC.  Newly renovated and ready for visitors, we will eat lunch, sketch and enjoy a day in this unique space complete with beautiful trees and a waterfall.
