The Color Wheelz in Long Island City project was a resounding success! We made around 15-20 new installations in and on the Color Wheelz van, and talked with another 50-60 people passing by, visiting the neighborhood, taking a daily constitutional, or otherwise enjoying a really lovely day in Queens!

painted linoleum arrows lead pedestrians passing through the nearby intersection to the van; I also installed some triangles across the street to get people to glance eastward and see our activity


artist Julia Vallera talking with passers-by, describing the project, talking about Flux Factory, notions of neighborhood and community, color, and participatory art

a wonderful shot of the Manhattan skyline from 45 Road and 21 Street in LIC – that building tip is the Chrysler Building, and that van is the Color Wheelz!
