Dirty Bandits

402 McGuinness Blvd, Greenpoint, Brooklyn

Artist Statement from Annica Lydenberg: By painting an outdoor mural, I am providing access to artwork outside of a studio, gallery, or institution. In this way, the mural belongs to everyone and no one simultaneously. The phrase You Are Not Alone holds tremendous power for me because of its universality. As a supporter of everything from mental health dialogues to racial justice to LGBTQ rights, I want to be seen as an ally. We all need more allies and painting this mural allows me to put that forward.
