Arts Westchester & City of White Plains Unveil Street Art Mural

White Plains Mayor Tom Roach and ArtsWestchester CEO Janet Langsam today joined the community to celebrate the completion of a new street mural on Mamaroneck and Martine Avenues. The public art project, created by well-known street artist Wayne “Wane One” Peterkin and made possible by ArtsWestchester and the City of White Plains, commemorates the 20th anniversary of the arts council building.

Today’s ceremony officially unveiled the 1,650-square foot street art installation that spans across the street entrance of ArtsWestchester. Named “Brighter Colors Better Life,” the mural is a visual composition of deconstructed geometric shapes created by a harmonious buildup of oversized 2D prisms of vibrant colors and hues. The alternating shapes and colors side by side creates a unique and interesting aesthetic.


Wane One explains, “’Brighter Colors Better Life’ is inspired by ArtsWestchester’s enduring presence in Westchester County.” He continued, “The secret to longevity is adaptability and transformation. The arts adapt and transform, and they endure. My design pays tribute to the dynamism of downtown White Plains, while the shifting colors are a nod to the transformative powers of the arts as embodied by ArtsWestchester.”

According to Wane One, this mural was designed in a technique that produces a kaleidoscopic effect for viewers as they engage with interesting lines, shapes and colors. The neatly crafted and abstracted designs are painted behind the larger shapes, pushing them to the foreground and popping the brighter color shapes off the background. When looking at the mural from street view, it appears that the abstracted shapes are floating in space as the grey primer will seamlessly blend the mural with the surrounding buildings and environment.
