Since 1991 Los Muralistas have completed over 40 community mural projects, primarily in the north Brooklyn communities of Los Sures and Bushwick. The collective and its members have also engaged other communities in mural projects throughout New York City and in other cities in the United States and abroad.
This mural, for the gym lobby of MS 50, depicts the origins of sports and 30 athletes who were pioneers in their sport and/or used their platforms as athletes to advocate for social justice.Detail of Bushwick mural.
Los Muralistas partnered with the New York Philharmonic and composer Angélica Negrón on this project that included this mural and an original musical composition performed at the New York Philharmonic's Young People's Concerts. The project examined the impacts of climate change and colonialism on the people of Puerto Rico.
