On Saturday, May 30, Creative Coalitions Brownsville unveiled its Writings on the Wall murals! The Writings on the Wall has been months in the making, with lots of long nights of planning, prepping and painting, these murals are up all over Brownsville, Brooklyn. Each of which celebrates visual art, poetry and much more. With help and inspiration from community youth, artists and organizers it’s just beginning!
