- NEW BLOG POST: A long-awaited mural enlivens the courtyard at Russel Sage Junior High School 190 in Forest Hills, Queens. This in-person outdoor mural program is part of a special grant award made possible by the New York City Artist Corps. The large mural encompasses the spacious outdoor courtyard and conveys themes of unity, love, family, equality, respect and inclusion. The owl mascot and school’s name are enveloped by “heart-headed” figures which symbolize the universal idea of a loving humanity and serve as a reminder of the common bond amongst students and Queen’s dynamic cultural diversity. Individual student names are scribed amidst the mural as they leave their mark on their school community.#FallintotheArts with #ArtsHorizons – Our new OCTOBER NEWSLETTER is out: Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, Welcome Marion to our Team, and Fall for the Arts with Arts Horizons this Season.
