‘Rock Dis Funky Joint,’ artist Dave Orantes’ tribute to a song by the Trenton hip hop group Poor Righteous Teachers.

The Trenton Downtown Association’s “Murals on Front Street” project continues for the fourth year thanks to a $25,000 New Jersey State Council on the Arts grant.

The funding is designed to continue community-based arts programming in Trenton.

Noted Trenton street artist Leon Rainbow again coordinates the project transforming walls of a parking garage at the corner of Front and South Broad Streets into works of art.

Street artists Dean “RAS” Innocenzi and R Fab are joining Rainbow in the project that continues through September 20.

Dean ‘Ras’ Innocenzi’s tribute to the late NJ skateboarder Brendan Wilkie.

“Murals on Front Street” was launched in 2017 as a live visual art event to complement the Levitt AMP Trenton Music Series, a TDA-sponsored series of 10 free concerts in the Mill Hill Park in downtown Trenton.

While the coronavirus pandemic forced the TDA to reschedule the 2020 series to 2021, officials were able to continue “Murals on Front” as well as the “We are Survivors” mural series created in partnership with the Trenton Health Team, and a city neighborhoods sidewalk chalk project.

“We could all use a little more positive energy and joyful, creative expression in our lives,” says Rainbow about the project.
