Houston Bowery Wall
The initiative to program the Houston Bowery wall in New York City and invite artists to work there was a renaissance for one of the highest regarded mural walls in the United States. Keith Haring made the wall infamous by painting an original mural as a gift to the community in the late 1970's. With ownership of the wall, the Goldman family felt a sense of responsibility to bring art and beauty to the public on a grand scale. The future of the wall will hold many a renaissance, forwarding movements of its own accord. With each rebirth the wall's program will broaden and reach out further to include established and emerging street artists from the United States and around the world who have a powerful message of hope, possibility and inspiration to young and old.
