Malaz Elegmiabby stands in front of a one-story brick building on West 25th Street, a couple blocks north of the West Side Market. She brushes a mixture of flour and water on a 4-foot-by-3-foot portrait of a local resident.
"That's Jasmine," Elegmiabby says. "She's an amazing artist. She just got a scholarship."
The photo is one of 250 black-and-white prints Elegmiabby is pasting to the bricks on the building’s exterior, with the help of a team of neighborhood residents and anyone else who wants to chip in.
