Art where everyone can see it

by lulujane on May 5, 2009


A week or so ago I was walking east on Wyandotte Street East, coming up to the 5500 block near Prado.  I noticed that a fresh coat of paint was being applied to the west side of the Modrigal store building.  Silently I wished for a piece of art to be applied over this solid colour.

Today while walking in the same neighbourhood I felt excited as I observed a multi-coloured undulating wave along the wall.  A small group of people, some of them up on a scaffold were applying the finishing touches to the installation of pieces of a sailboat image over the wave.  I was grateful that I had my little point and shoot digital in my purse to record the moment.  In discussion with some of the artists I discovered that two additional murals are planned for this area of Riverside.
