Photographer's Note

Recently a new mural appeared on a busy stretch of 14th Street, (also known as Union Square South), in the Greenwich Village area of Manhattan. It’s the work of a Brooklyn-based couple called GERALUZ and WERC. Last year, this part of 14th Street was designated for buses and trucks only, allowing for a better flow of traffic. Part of the roadway was also designated as a new pedestrian area just below Union Square Park, and that’s where the mural was painted.

This art, called Collective Vision, is inspired by the power of nature and unity. It features ruby-throated hummingbirds, other generic birds, and different kinds of flowers. Each of the flowers is an endangered native plant. The mural also pays homage to the history of social justice movements in Union Square, as well as the struggle for racial equality in America. Union Square has been a spot for protests of various kinds since the 1800’s.

Here is one section of the mural, looking west on 14th Street. In the WS is another view.
