New Oscar Lopez Rivera mural !

East Harlem Preservation along with other neighborhood supporters hosted a fundraiser to create a new Oscar Lopez Rivera mural. The previous mural had been harshly defaced. Along with their Six to Celebrate grant from HDC and the money they raised they were able to hire the original muralist to paint a new mural. There are still several more paintings around East Harlem that need to be restored, so fundraising will continue; but for now we celebrate the beautiful new Oscar Lopez Rivera mural !
