Barrier Beautification, New York DOT




I just entered this piece to paint jersey barriers in NYC. Jersey barriers are the concrete links that are placed along a road or highway during construction. I've seen these things painted with works of art and always wondered who was responsible for it. Now I know. I'm not sure how many artists get chosen. The last contest back in Spring had 4 winners. Each winner gets a section in one of the five boroughs to be painted in one day with a group of volunteers. The barrier could stretch for over a thousand feet. If I get this, it'll be my biggest painting yet. Wish me luck.
