“Pier Pressure” in Chelsea: Artists Transform Ground Level of the Marina @ Pier 57 into Mesmerizing Medley of Styles

July 10, 2013

Armed with spray paint, paintbrushes, markers, pencils and assorted implements, a diverse group of artists have transformed the ground level of the Marina at Pier 57 into a mesmerizing medley of styles, shapes, colors and concepts. Here’s a sampling of what we recently captured on the “magic carpet” under 36 suspended shipping containers:
