Public Art for the People with Worthless Studios' Plywood Project

During the peak social justice protests following the murder of George Floyd in June 2020, shops in NYC boarded up to protect their businesses, causing plywood prices to skyrocket and taking this accessible resource away from artists. In response, and in honor of these movements a year later, Brooklyn-based arts nonprofit, worthless studios, launched The Plywood Protection Project to collect this wood and redistribute it to artists who have transformed it into public art across the five boroughs, with Manhattan’s installation located in TriBeCa’s Thomas Paine Park.
