NEW YORK (AP) - A colorful public mural by famed artist Domingo Zapata will soon go up along New York City’s High Line elevated park.

Organizers say Zapata will paint the mural on the facade of a West 14th Street building.

It’s slated to be completed by the end of May.

The work is inspired by one of his most recognizable works “Flowers.”

Zapata says he’ll be donating proceeds from the fundraising for the mural design to several local children’s charities.

He previously has donated $100,000 in meals from Garlic Pizza to the Bowery Mission in exchange for his work.

The artist has been commissioned to paint a commemorative mural for the lobby of 1 World Trade Center.
