Local artist paints scenic Bronx mural
Bronx residents will soon be able to see several local landmarks all in one place.
The Bronx Terminal Market recruited local artist Lindsey Warren to create a mural showcasing local landmarks.
The 72-foot wall will soon be covered with paintings of the New York Botanical Garden, High Bridge and Ferry Point Park.
Warren says she took pictures of the landmarks before starting the project, then sketched out what she wants the mural to look like.
The Bronx Museum of the Arts selected Warren from several applicants in its 'Emerging Artist Program' due to her ability to paint urban landscapes.
Warren is still painting the mural and says she'll be ready to unveil the finished product on May 19.
