Street Theory co-founder Liza Quiñonez organizes “place’keeping” with a diverse team of artists, bringing attention to street culture and messages celebrating multiculturalism. Quiñonez is a curator and leader with over 15 years of experience working in the arts. Street Theory is a collective unified by beliefs in the power of street culture, communication through art, and desires for more representation at both the proverbial tables and visual spaces where its members live and work. Envisioning Murals for the Movement, Quiñonez installed more than a dozen murals “to magnify culturally-inspired and social justice-related works by BIPOC artists” in Boston and New York City.

My Projects

  • Murals for the Movement: DUMBO, Brooklyn

    Works by Cey Adams, Sophia Dawson and Marka27, Produced by Street Theory, create a celebration of African American and Latinx heritages, resilience, and community. Created at a time of deep social and political uprising, Murals for the Movement brings large-scale new works along the walls of the BQE and below the Manhattan Bridge in Dumbo. Murals for the Movement was realized as a response to police brutality and is intended as a way to rebuild communities across multiple cities with uplifting large-scale murals and public art by Black Artists and Artists of Color. Visual and graffiti artist Cey Adams displays his latest vivid work, Love, designed to encourage the viewer to think and see beyond the surface and engage in positive conversations about the complexity of our diverse community, while Sophia Dawson’s Standing In The Gap pays homage to the legacy of past generations and the freedoms they fought for through the use of a color bar theme and a textural ginkgo African fabric. Lastly, street artist Victor 'Marka27' Quinonez’s Back to the Essence, Brooklyn celebrates the African Diaspora and contemporary Afro Futurism incorporating tropical backgrounds, bold colors, and nature that are representative of motherland Africa’s flowers, plants, and native animals.
