Paulaner Mural on the Bowery
Paulaner NYC, the Craft-Brewery and Restaurant, and The L.I.S.A. Project NYC announce a collaborative mural at 265 Bowery in Lower Manhattan.
"Beau Stanton‘s new piece for Manhattan goes beyond the mural, and is instead the entire facade of the new Paulaner beer hall on The Bowery. An artwork in conjunction with the L.I.S.A. Project, the piece infuses an abstraction of hops and barley with Stanton’s signature Victorian letterpress style, but also references a particularly grim event that surrounded the area. The center of the piece portrays the wheelhouse from the ill-fated ship, the PS General Slocum, which scandalously sank in 1904, bringing a large portion of New York City’s German population with it. On June 15 of that year, the ship tragically sank, killing 1,021 of the 1,342 on board- ranking as New York’s worst disaster in terms of loss of life – only after the September 11th attacks." - Lori Zimmer, Art Nerd New York
