Carpet Collage is a site-specific mural installed on Vanderbilt Avenue in Brooklyn, New York, between Dean and Bergen Streets. The 12 x 160 foot mural was commissioned by NYC Department of Transportation in 2021, with support from Vanderbilt Avenue Open Streets.
New Yorkers have always thought of our streets, sidewalks, and public spaces as an extension of home- especially for the last year and a half. I hope this makes you think of this city as your living room.
