A mural ' to honor the indomitable spirit of Ukraine'

The new Citizens Bank branch on Ninth Street and Second Avenue is marking the one-month anniversary of Russia's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine with a new mural. 

Via the EVG inbox... 
Ukrainian artist Misha Tyutyunik will be painting a large-scale mural with public participation at the Citizens Bank branch in Little Ukraine, East Village. This mural was designed with the people of Kyiv during Tyutyunik's time in Ukraine during his Fulbright program. The mural is a gift from Citizens to its neighbors to honor the indomitable spirit of Ukraine. 

The bank opened branches across New York City in February with a mission to support the neighborhoods they are in. In addition to the mural, Citizens will announce a donation to UNWLA, a women-led organization [based in the East Village] that has taken extraordinary efforts to raise money to help Ukrainian refugees. 
Signage shows that the work will take place between noon and 2 today...

The HSBC-Citizens Bank switcheroo officially happens today on the SW corner of Second Avenue and Ninth Street...
Not sure what kind of festivities will take place to mark the occasion. (Do banks still give away toasters? If not, then they should.)

As previously reported on EVG, HSBC agreed last spring to sell 80 of its 148 U.S. branches to Providence, R.I.-based Citizens Bank.

As the bank branches turn on 2nd Avenue

Meanwhile, in bank branch news... as you likely know, HSBC agreed last spring to sell 80 of its 148 U.S. branches to Providence, R.I.-based Citizens Bank. 

The HSBC on the SW corner of Ninth Street and Second Avenue made the cut and will transition to a Citizens Bank on Feb. 17. 

Ahead of that, workers yesterday installed the deep-green Citizens signage (with the daisy wheel logo ) ... EVG contributor Steven was there to mark the occasion...
... and at the end of the day, a temp HSBC was back on the marquee...
HSBC arrived here in the spring of 2010 ... before it was a bank branch, the Max Brenner's Chocolate by the Bald Man haunted this space
