Jack Cowart and Rob McKeeveron Greene Street Mural
In December 1983, Roy Lichtenstein’s Greene Street Mural was unveiled at Leo Castelli Gallery, 142 Greene Street, New York. One month later, in January of 1984, it was covered up. Several years later, it was destroyed. In August of 2015, a team of sign painters replicated the Greene Street Mural at Gagosian West 24th Street, New York. Jack Cowart, Executive Director of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, and Rob McKeever, a former assistant to Lichtenstein, recall the making of the original Greene Street Mural.
