19. José Parlá Commissioned to Paint 70-foot Mural at Barclay's Center
Date: December 27
On December 27th, it was announced that José Parlá would be painting a 70-foot mural at Brooklyn's Barclay's Center titled A Diary of Brooklyn. Supposedly we will be able to see it sometime this month. The commission is no surprise given Jay-Z's appearance at Parlá's book release party with JR for The Wrinkles of the City: Havana, Cuba at Art Basel Miami.
