What is the WorldPride Mural Project?

Many of us have been anticipating the arrival of WorldPride NYC for months or even years. But what about those who haven’t realized that we’re celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising? And how will out-of-town visitors know that this June the city is coming together in a spirit of Pride? Heritage of Pride (HoP) has a visual answer for that.

 

“We knew we had to create something that would express, our defiance, our fears, our gratitude and our pride,” HoP said. “There is no better way to do this than thru art. Art comes in many forms, but as New Yorkers we revere street art. Murals decorate our streets while also telling our stories. The artists behind these creative, and sometimes massive, works of art breathe even more life into an already vibrant city.”

 

In that spirit, HoP is literally painting the town. They chose 50 artists – both national and international – to create Pride-themed murals in all five boroughs. Its official name is the “WorldPride Mural Project”. Partners include LISA Project NYC, HSBC, and Macy’s. The murals, HoP continues, will “reflect and honor the beauty, struggle, and strides of the LGBTQIA+ community.”
