While walking in Morningside Park, I came across this very decorative table/bench set up. It was covered in various artwork and is part of the LEAP student public art program. Rather than talk about it, here are the images I took of their piece about bullying. It is made of oil paint pens, acrylic paint, and canvas paper. The teaching artist was Susan Woldman and the teacher was Alix Delincis.
The above reads as follows: Do not bully me. Instead let’s be friends. Let’s have respect and come up with peaceful solutions. Let’s be nice to one another. This artwork is part of a 10-park citywide exhibition by students in 10 schools as part of LeAP’s Public Art Program 2015.
