About this Event

On September 09, 2019, Greenpoint Innovations (GPI) launched its Greenpoint EARTH (GPE) initiative to serve as the company’s creative hub for ‘art plus purpose’ projects to raise awareness about climate change and nature-based solutions.

GPE's first street art for climate project of 2019, featuring internationally acclaimed Brooklyn-based artists, Danielle Mastrion and Lexi Bella, puts a spotlight on NYC's Queens and Brooklyn splitting Newtown Creek—which was so polluted it was designated a Federal Superfund site in 2010—with the goal of sparking conversation about climate change and the role that nature can play as a solution. The mural is being produced in collaboration with local organizations Broadway Stages, the Newtown Creek Alliance, and Kingsland Wildflowers, as well as with support from the world’s largest knowledge-led platform on sustainable land use, the Global Landscapes Forum.

This “VIP Clean Cruise Climate Street Art Viewing Celebration” will be conducted aboard the hybrid electric cargo vessel operated in NY/CT by Harbor Harvest, in collaboration with SW/TCH Maritime. This vessel is the first Hybrid cargo vessel carrying local sustainable farm products across Long Island Sound without emissions or environmental impact as part if the Federal Marine Highway program. The catamaran will provide the group with an all-electric voyage departing from a dock in Long Island City to the site of the mural at Newtown Creek.

Event is invite only—request your invite by emailing info@greenpointinnovations.com with subject line “VIP Clean Cruise”.

The following day (09/28), join GLF New York 2019 for its conference "Restore the Earth" at the United Nations HQ to help define the most important Decade of the century - the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration. Register here.

Join us also on the 21st for the 4th Annual Kingsland Wildflowers Festival to witness the mural unveiling ceremony. Free to attend, and open to the public. Sign up here.
