See ChangeNYC a joint initiative of the Mayors Office and the New York City Department of Design and Construction asked Jon Burgerman to ‘renovate’ a bathroom.
Their goal is to improve the experience of the most vulnerable New Yorkers who depend on walk-in centers for services and support. These centres include senior, food stamps, jobs, probation centers and shelters.
Grafitti often plagues the bathrooms of the services centers. To curb it, See ChangeNYC had an idea; Turn the bathrooms into art galleries. Put plaques on the door to honor the art, honor the artist. Will clients leave it be? Respect what these artists do? We’ll see, It’s an experiment.
Big thank you to Lonni Tanner and to Krink for the paint and pens.
