Description & History
7Train Murals a non-profit organization dedicated to revitalizing vacant and vandalized public spaces in neighborhoods along the 7Train in Queens.
Here's what we do:
- We are dedicated to serving ONLY neighborhoods along the 7Train from LIC all the way to Flushing. Go Queens!
-In efforts with local Councilmen, Business Improvement Districts, landlords, and tenants we design professional SITE-SPECIFIC murals that beautify the community.
-Our murals are then painted 100% by VOLUNTEERS WHO LIVE OR WORK in the mural's vicinity. We guide and instruct all volunteers on-site on how to paint, even those with little or no background in painting, so anyone with an interest in civic pride can make a visual contribution.
-We use only brushes and rollers, NOT AEROSOL SPRAY PAINT CANS harmful to our health and environment.
-We MAINTAIN our finished murals and its surroundings.
We believe these 5 critical elements separate 7Train Murals from all other mural programs in NYC! Roll up your sleeves and join us!
