Market Surplus will be taking over LES this weekend, as New York City-based artist Hanksy and Essex Crossing have joined forces with a group of artists to bring the colorful murals of the city indoors. In short, this particular exhibition aims to transfer the typically permanent world of large scale mural art inside.

Open to the public beginning today and running through June 25, the vibrant artwork has transformed a historic Lower East Side building located at 140 Essex Street. You’ll be able to take in the masterful work tonight from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. and tomorrow and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. While entry is free, a donation of just $10 USD is suggested, to be awarded to the LES Girls Club.

This year’s participating artists include BKFoxx, Buff Monster, Elle, Faust, Hanksy, Lamour Supreme, NDA, OWVBICS, Pixel Pancho and Sonni.
