    4th and Fulton

    This Fourth Friday, stop by 4th and Fulton for the official unveiling of  Harmony and the Windows of Curiosities, a large-scale mixed-media mural designed by Conrad Booker.

    The mural features a map of Queen Village as it appeared in 1865, when Fulton Street was known as Harmony Street and Kauffman Street was known as Jane Street. The mural also depicts the historic Bethel Burying Ground where Weccacoe Playground is located today. Other details, such as books, letters, and pottery offer a look into the past while expressing values such as knowledge, truth, and kindness. The butterfly handprints were created by children who live in the neighborhood.

    This community art project was initiated by residents of the 400 block of Fulton Street who sought to beautify a run-down facade by commissioning the design and installation of a mural. QVNA provided support for the project through the Community Grants Program.
