Family Day 2018

Updated: Dec 11, 2018

Family Day, a yearly event at the Robert Fulton Houses, gathers residents and neighbors for outdoor festivities, community building, and food.

Art Connects was thrilled to participate in Fulton Family Day with a collaborative brainstorming mural that asked residents, “What kind of art do we want in our green spaces?” Residents came out with markers blazing, suggesting everything from interactive sculptures of animals and musicians to fountains and water slides!

The question posed, was devised by members of the Tenant Art Committee and shared with neighbors in English, Spanish, Chinese, and Russian, languages spoken by Fulton Houses tenants.


Overall, Family Day was a great success for the Fulton Houses Art Committee. Greater community connections were made, the inherent creativity of residents was put on display, and enthusiasm for moving the Art Connects partnership forward grew!
