Deshi Senior Center

 
 

This mural was painted in collaboration with Danielle Mastrion for the Deshi Senior Center in Ozone Park, Queens, August 2018.

The mural shows seniors smiling and enjoying the activities that the center offers: yoga, Zumba, Sudoku, bingo, cards, and coloring. The center hopes that the mural will encourage other seniors in the community that may be suffering from depression or loneliness to come inside and connect with others. A portion of the mural was painted by the seniors themselves during a community paint day.
