Greetings! We would like to invite you to participate in a local community event.

New York City Department of Transportation is partnering with New York Cares for our biannual Barrier Beautification Day. Join Brooklyn-based artist Amy Madden and other volunteers to paint her design onto 1,000 feet of barrier on Saturday, October 22nd between 10 am and 4 pm.

This is a joint effort to beautify our neighborhoods through art. We thought this event would serve as a community-building and bonding opportunity.

Meet at the exit of the Fort Hamilton Parkway subway stop (F/G) [Fort Hamilton Parkway at E. 5th Street] at 10 am to participate in the day. Lunch will not be provided but 45 minutes will be allotted to volunteers for lunch. If interested in signing up, please contact Emily Colasacco, Manager of the NYCDOT Urban Art Program at ecolasacco [at] or arts [at]
Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you! (The flyer for the event is attached; feel free to print and distribute).
