Artist: Peter Missing and Cyril Mazard
Location: First Street Green
Spring 2016 (in conjunction with LES History Month)
Peter Missing and Cyril Mazard have been part of the Lower East Side history and community since 1980s. Peter’s upside-down martini glass insignia, often referred to as “The party is over”, used to be tagged all over the neighborhood – a signal to developers that community members would not be displaced. Peter and Cyril centers the mural on this symbol and depicts a portrait of the natural and urban elements of the Lower East Side.
