On Tuesday, January 26th, please join the Times Square Alliance in celebrating the completion of Sofia Maldonado’s residency at Blank SL8. In her 19 days between January 8 – 26, 2010, Maldonado has painted a 92-feet mural depicting NYC women from her Puerto Rican – Cuban heritage. Flowing clouds of pastel colors provide the background for 12-foot tall images of beautiful and powerful women painted in an elaborate street-art style. The painted plywood panels on display at BLANK SL8 will be installed on the outdoor construction fence at 219 West 42nd Street between 7th and 8th Avenues in the final week of February 2010.
