This is shaping up to be the summer of street art, and now yet another public street art initiative has opened, this time in Coney Island. The project is called Coney Art Walls, and it's essentially an outdoor street art museum showcasing the works of street artists from New York and all over the world, including Crash, Daze, Futura, Kenny Scharf, and Shepard Fairey, among a host of others.
Coney Art Walls opened in May and is open to the public seven days a week for the rest of the summer. The 55,000-square-foot site is bordered by 15th Street and Stillwell Avenue, directly adjacent to the Boardwalk, and also contains Coney Smorgasburg. The show is presented by Thor Equities.
