Welling Court Mural Project

wellingct1

For about 2 and a half years, my main office was located in Astoria until the move to Midtown this spring. I felt like I knew the area pretty well for the basics: post office, parking spots, Starbucks. The opening scene of Orange is the New Black, season 3, episode 3, even had me all excited because I walked by that restaurant every day (um, where was I when this was filming). However, I was totally unaware that a mere 10 minute walk from my office was Welling Court – an area with over 130 murals, until I saw on Instagram that Danielle Mastrion was working on a piece. I was in the area on Sunday so I checked it out and it was truly impressive. Taking photographs of murals is kind of similar to taking pictures of art in a museum, minus the iPad, but I did put the camera down frequently to just take it all in.
