New 7,500 SF Mural Installed Along Union Square’s 14th Street Corridor

Union Square Partnership (USP) recently announced the completion of the BID’s fourth annual street mural along the pedestrian areas of the 14th Street Busway. Spanning between Broadway and University Place, the new 7,500-square-foot mural was designed by Queens-based visual artist Talisa Almonte; and was selected from over 27 original mural submissions. Titled “Flowing Together,” the bright and bold mural abstractly depicts the “flow of people who congregate in Union Square’s public spaces.” “Organic shapes of diverse colors, representing the constant flow of people passing through Union Square” fill the southern portion of the street mural, “while the northern portion showcases those same shapes joining into a spiral, representing the unification of people for a specific cause.” The installation between May 13 and May 17 was completed with the help of community partners, volunteers and sponsors. The 14th Street mural program, which aims to beautify the streetscape, is presented by the BID in partnership with the New York City Department of Transportation Art (NYC DOT Art) program and supported by Street Plans, a Brooklyn-based urban planning and design firm.
