Street Artists ASVP’s Limited-Edition Print Supports Intermediate School 318

“Equilibrium” by ASVP (coutesy of Stephen Donofrio)

Intermediate School 318 (101 Walton St.) is now hosting a large-scale mural by street artists ASVP spanning five stories and featuring balancing endangered species to start a conversation about the earth’s sustainability.

The mural, entitled “Equilibrium,” was one of two murals painted at the school last summer as part of #THEPOINTNYC, a Climate Week NYC project produced by Greenpoint Innovations in partnership with Comics Uniting Nations, Hypokrit Theatre Company, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater and the United Nations Children’s Fund.

Vintage clothing retailer Walk the West (150 Franklin St.) is currently displaying a large framed print of “Equilibrium” that is for sale and the store is helping to sell the smaller signed 15″ X 20″ prints. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the prints will go toward the parent-teacher association of IS318. The limited edition signed 15″ X 20″ prints can also be purchased online.

“We hope that in addition to raising money for the school, these prints will help us continue raising awareness about human-driven climate change and the urgency for all people, particularly the youth, to take action,” said Stephen Donofrio, founder of Greenpoint Innovations. “We’re grateful to ASVP for their support, talent, and ongoing generosity with this project.”
