Murals Draw Attention to Delray

Murals Draw Attention to Delray

The recent Delray Beach land deal, in the blocks on West Atlantic, in between I95 and Swinton, included a project bringing art to Delray’s streets.

In this deal, land was given to developer BH3 who is now seeking artists to help adorn the walls throughout the area.

“The Paint the City mural program is something that we at BH3 started in New York in collaboration with a friend and partner of mine,” said Daniel Lebensohn, cofounder of BH3. “We have murals in Chinatown in Manhattan and a few in Brooklyn as well. The concept around it is to help bring awareness to different neighborhoods and helping them emerge through the arts.”

This program is part of a larger effort to bring attention to an area that has been otherwise neglected.

One of the first murals, located at 524 W Atlantic (also recently acquired by BH3), was painted by David Paul Kay a New York City-based artist known for his style, almost exclusively in black and white, and is only one of two murals he has ever done in red and white. (The other was done for Montblanc, German manufacturer of luxury writing instruments, watches, jewelry, eye wear and leather goods.)

“I hope the murals create awareness of the west Delray area and generate the emergence of this historic neighborhood,” Lebensohn said. “The ripple effects of well-placed art will, and often does, have tremendous impact.”

BH3 says up to 10 more murals could emerge in Delray Beach in the coming months as part of the Delray Beach Art Collective project sponsored by BH3, Paint the City and other local business leaders.

“Art brings awareness, and if art stimulates conversation, then we’re doing something right,” he said. “We are always looking to expand our network of creatives and people who want to contribute to the effort.
