DESCRIPTION

Knox Martin | The Whaling Wall Public Art Project

Knox Martin's 7th NYC public art project is moving forward!
Knox Martin and Woodward Gallery announce this important public artwork, The Whaling Wall, to be premiered as a public mural at 334 Grand Street in New York, corner of Grand and Ludlow Streets scheduled to be completed September 2011.
The powerful image depicts man’s irresponsible killing of the whales, a metaphor for peace and a call for humanity.  Known for his muralist work, Knox was seen in the recent past on a cherry picker putting his signature in a more visible location when his Venus was partially covered by construction of a new building adjacent to that mural.
The Whaling Wall is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas non profit arts service organization. Contributions for the purpose of The Whaling Wall must be made payable to Fractured Atlas (501(c)(3) public charity) and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
