Mural designed by Carmen Herrera painted by Bronx school students
13 July 2017Through the program Publicolor — which gives at-risk students opportunities to take part in design projects in their schools — students at M.S. 244 in the Bronx in New York painted a mural designed by Carmen Herrera based on her 1952 work "Untitled", part of the collection at the Museum of Modern Art.
This is the first time Publicolor has collaborated with a living artist. In 2015, it worked with the estate of Sol LeWitt, which donated two murals that students painted at the High School of Fashion Industries, in Chelsea.
The mural comes after Publicolor took students in its program to see the artist’s solo exhibition at the Whitney, "Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight", last year.
