No Free Walls: a Mini-Documentary on How Street Art and Gentrification Collide in Bushwick

The Bushwick Collective is a non-profit organization which organizes and curates a collection of street art murals in a rapidly-gentrifying former industrial area of Bushwick, Brooklyn.

This great mini-documentary from Complex titled No Free Walls shines a spotlight on the intersection of street art and gentrification in Bushwick.

NO FREE WALLS is an in-depth look at Brooklyn's changing landscape, through the eyes of Joseph Ficalora, the founder and inadvertent art curator of The Bushwick Collective. Joe, son of Italian immigrants, grew up in Bushwick, a neighborhood in Brooklyn once ravaged by drugs, neglect and violence.
