Monumentally scaled mural ‘We Are At a Moment That Will Be Remembered as the Beginning of the Great Change, For Who Can Say When a Wall Is Ready To Come Down’ appears as if emerging from the inner rings of the Prospect Park Bandshell amidst a swirling, hand painted cosmos. Within it, every being — humans, insects, and goddesses alike — vibrates with color and detail, as they witness or join in the joyful dismantling of a brick wall. The work is inspired by the scale and narrative qualities of WPA mural projects and by Mexican muralism, especially José Clemente Orozco’s Prometheus, depicting the mythological figure who stole fire from the gods and gave it to humanity.

Presented by BRIC and Prospect Park Alliance in partnership with NYC Parks.
