Viva the Healthy City

Project Description

Groundswell, New York City FC, and PS 24 collaborated to create a beautiful new mural organized and designed by female students to enhance the school’s new soccer field.  To create this mural, 30 elementary school students reflected on their personal experiences as young girls during an intensive public artmaking program, presented with the support of the New York City Council through its STARS Citywide Girls Initiative.
The new mural conveys the notions of healthy living, physical fitness, and teambuilding, all of which are necessary to build New York City children's futures. The mural depicts young girls playing soccer with a skyline full of NYC landmarks, including a soccer ball-patterned subway train. A banner reading "One team, One Dream, One Mission" reminds everyone who will see it of the power of team unity.
