NYCDOT, in partnership with the Chinatown Partnership, has selected Artist Chen Dongfan to implement a 4800 square foot asphalt mural on Doyers Street as part of the Doyers Street Seasonal Street.

Seasonal Streets temporarily transform streets into vibrant public space during warm weather when people use them the most. In addition to movable furniture, umbrellas, and other amenities, the Seasonal Street will also feature a temporary public art installation presented through the NYCDOT Art Program’s Arterventions program track, titled “The Song of Dragon and Flowers,” created by artist Chen Dongfan. The asphalt art mural seeks to highlight the historical significance of Doyers Street and the history of Asian American immigration to the United States of America.
