How CITYarts Transformed Alexander Hamilton Playground with Community Youth and Artist Hugo Bastidas: Following in the Footsteps of Alexander Hamilton was a 3-year long mural project in Harlem, NY (138th and Hamilton Pl.). These three 80'H x 25'W Murals celebrate the unique community identity of Hamilton Heights, where Hamilton lived, and inspire our youth to follow in his footsteps. CITYarts Mission: Educate. Empower. Transform. CITYarts engages youth with professional artists in the creation of public art, including murals and mosaic.
