New Rochelle has so much to boast about, one being The New Rochelle Artsy Murals. Sponsored by The Radisson, Watermark Pointe, NRNY Art Council, Honda of New Rochelle, New Rochelle Toyota, Delta, DiCiccio & Sons, Mazda of New Rochelle, Lordae, Durante Rentals, the murals were ‘artfully’ placed on walls not to obstruct city living but rather to enhance the walls of existing buildings. The street artists are from around the world, and Street Art for Mankind were behind the project and their endeavors are to help stop child slavery around the world..
The Mission Of Street Art for Mankind
“We are a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization uniting prominent street artists from all around the world to free children from forced labor and slavery.
100% of the funds we raise go to awareness campaigns and actions on the field to save children, especially the raid and rescue programs operated by the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Kailash Satyarthi and its KSCF Foundation.”
