“Climate Change Aint Nothing To Mess With” is a public art Installations that take place over the course of one month on a busy corridor of Castleton Ave. Cody Prez, along with youth participants from local communities transform a 2 story high wall into thought provoking & inspiring public art piece. This 2000 square foot, larger than life mural will enhance the aesthetic of #ArtistAlleySI , an outdoor public art space along a thriving commercial corridor in West Brighton.
Climate Change Ain’t Nothing To Mess With mural is made possible (in part) by a DCA Premier Grant from Staten Island Arts, with public funding from the
New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
With record breaking temperatures, rising sea levels & extreme weather conditions across the planet have been a clear indication that something serious is happening with our planet. Hurricane Sandy in NYC & the weather systems that destroyed Caribbean & U.S. Islands this past couple seasons are also proof. Thus the inspiration for Climate Change Ain’t Nothing To Mess With! The piece also pays homage to the world famous music group from Staten Island, the Wu Tang Clan. The Wu shaped satellite image mural, speaks to the tremendous impact, serious natural weather related forces can have on our planet. No matter what race, religion, or cultural preference, mother nature can change you & your neighbors life in a matter of seconds.
