Concrete Connection

Send us your photos for a public art mural in the South Bronx!

Concrete Connection is a proposed art intervention at a busy intersection in the South Bronx. It seeks to create a visual connection to—and thereby increase awareness of—the neighboring Bronx River Greenway parks. The proposed artwork will depict community members of the Southern Boulevard neighborhood engaging in park activities in a series of large-scale portraits displayed as a mural near Concrete Plant Park—part of the Bronx River Greenway.


Some of the activities at Concrete Plant Park offered but are not limited to are: canoeing, bird-watching, running / jogging, playing sports, harvesting in the edible food garden, playing sports, yoga, dog-walking, barbequing, and playing music. Take a picture of you showing us what you love to do at the park! Use props! Get creative!


Here’s how to participate:

1. Think of something you love to do at Concrete Plant Park.

2. Take a picture of you doing this activity with your face towards the camera.

3. Email your photo to concreteconnectionmural@gmail.com along with your name, age, zip code, and a short description of your activity.

4. See yourself in a beautiful mural created by artist Richard Chance at the Westchester Avenue entrance of Concrete Plant Park!
