Each One Reach One
Vincent Ballentine (artist), LIC YMCA and Janovic (community partners); Long Island Rail Road (site representative)
Artist Vincent Ballentine worked with local teens from the LIC YMCA, to design and paint this mural on plywood panels. Nestled between the bustling train tracks, buildings and bridges of LIC, the final work symbolizes the teens’ worries and aspirations for the future, while enhancing the path of pedestrians along Skillman Avenue. Long Island Rail Road provided additional support for this project.
Special thanks to the New York Community Trust for their support in executing this project.
Each One Reach One is a project under LIC Arts Connection, an innovative, multi-site community arts initiative that builds non-traditional partnerships between public and private owners, local businesses, employees, students, residents, and artists.
