Front & York, CIM Group and LIVWRK’s mixed-use development in Dumbo, is now home to one of the largest tributes to essential workers citywide. The project’s developers recently unveiled the art installation with New York-based nonprofit ArtBridge and pilot program City Canvas.

The nearly-500-foot-long mural by artist Misha Tyutyunik was created specifically for the Front & York site to express gratitude for the thousands of essential workers who have kept New York City running throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We saw our construction fence as an opportunity to bring something creative and meaningful to the community in collaboration with an inspiring organization like ArtBridge,” said Jason Schreiber, principal, investments of CIM Group.

The artwork was installed via City Canvas, a pilot program through the Department of Cultural Affairs that allows nonprofits such as ArtBridge to install large-scale, temporary artwork on construction fences and sheds throughout the five boroughs.
