The park has been undergoing some transformation the last few weeks with old ramps getting repaired, moved, or taken down. New ramps have been going up, and we have been working with NYC Parks and NYC Health who chose our park to be part of the Art in The Parks program which is now in it’s 50th year.
Mullaly Bikepark is working with two talented muralists to collaborate on bringing the park’s space to life in a different way than we are used to. The artists involved are LAMKAT and Laura Alvarezwho each brought their own style to the park and focused on certain areas of the park, much like our riders do. Through the use of layering, pattern, geometry, and the visual suggestion of movement, the collection of murals throughout Mullaly Bikepark strive to aesthetically represent the technical precision and skill necessary to accomplish tricks on and off the ramp. LAMKAT and Laura Alvarez are both multi-disciplinary artists living and working in the New York City area.
We would like to invite you to visit the park on SUNDAY NOVEMBER 5th for a day of fun, where we will be showing off the changes at the park, and celebrating our home for BMX riders here in The Bronx. Aside from showing off our new works from LAMKAT and Laura Alvarez we will have photos by Elias Williams on display and have BMX riding going on all day long. As always all of our events are free to the public. The event will run from 12:00pm until 4:00pm. You can see our Facebook Event Page HERE for additional information
Art in the Parks: Active Open Space is a partnership between NYC Parks and the New York City Department of Health &Mental Hygiene, in collaboration with the Fund for Public Health in New York and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to activate park space with health-inspired art installations that promote physical activity and strengthen community connections. Funding for this project was made possible by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
