To celebrate the completion of two murals made with Air purifying paint, students of The High School of Art & Design in Manhattan will engage in a day of activities to improve air quality in and around the school building and to raise awareness about greenhouse gas emissions. Activities will include rooftop planting, sidewalk planter beautification and an airlite painting session, in collaboration with NY Horticultural Society, East Midtown Partnership, NY Sunworks and The High School of Environmental Sciences.
Art Is in the Air will be held during NYC Climate Week, on NYC's Zero Emissions Day, which also marks the 2nd Anniversary of the United Nations Youth Climate Summit. The event will be an occasion to present to the community and the press the two murals made with Airlite paint by the students in collaboration with artists Giorgia Rojas Monaco and Yusuke Ochiai. These are the first artworks ever made with Airlite paint in an American school.
