Eco-Trash Mural with NBC Universal

Urban Arts Partnership was proud to play a role in NBC Universal’s “Green is Universal” campaign.  Our students from The Facing History School in Hell’s Kitchen, IS 528 in Washington Heights, MS 131 in Manhattan’s Chinatown and IS 230 in Queens took a field trip to the world-famous 30 Rock Studio 8H, on the Saturday Night Live Set.


They took part in creating an original Eco-Trash Mural alongside NBC Universal employees.   Read about it on the NBC Universal blog (including time lapse video of the process), and watch our exceptional students explain their work on broadcast Television.


Many thanks to our partners at NBC Universal for creating this opportunity for our students!
