Preview – The Mural project – Governors Ball Music Festival – Randall’s Island, NYC

Every year New Yorkers are treated to a genre bending music festival at Randall’s Island.  This year along with bands like The Strokes & Outkast patrons will be surrounded by murals painted and pasted by some of NYC’s best street artists (with some help from some foreign friends) including Icy & Sot, Fumero, Robots Will Kill, Whisbe, Chris Stain, Craig Anthony Miller, Juan Carlos Pinto, Magda Love, John Paul O’Grodnick, Rubin 415, Gumshoe, Jacob Henderson, Balu, Iena Cruz, Katherine Clarke Langlands, Adam Dare, Joseph Meloy, Kimyon 333, & Don’t Fret.

 
Curators EVERYONE ONLY has set out to produce the first street art exposition at a major NYC music festival.
Once again I am blessed to be invited to hang out with some of street art’s elite on a beautiful sunny day.  Although the vibe was mostly work, work, work… there was some time for backyard football and pizza ; )
Taking place at Randall’s Island June 6-8th, these murals will be strategically placed throughout the crowd to create the illusion of enjoying the music as if the listener was in a giant field of grass located in Bushwick Brooklyn.
I am crossing my fingers for a press pass to the show (I really can never see Broken Bells or Washed Out play to many times).  But for those who cannot make it to The show the majority of the works will be showcased at Succulent Studios in Greenpoint Brooklyn from June 28th-July 11th.
