HUNTS POINT VILLAGE OF MURALS

Village of Murals – Walking to THE POINT Campus for Arts and The Environment and Barretto Point Park is a large-scale urban design/public art project that commissions artists and art groups to green industrial pathways with murals to Hunts Point parks. Featured here are two mural/green walls sponsored by Sims Metal Management, local industrial and largest scrap metal recycling company in the world.  An ongoing project of THE POINT's Visual Arts Program, these featured public artworks are just a few of many more to come throughout Hunts Point.  We encourage you to visit and enjoy the view!
