Map update of Justin Desilva’s temporary crosswalks HarborWalk Public Art Challenge
Artist Justin Desilva is more than half way through his ambitious public art installation, With Every Street There’s a Story. Remember, they’re temporary, so take time to check them out.
Some of the murals are at different stages in their installation process; you will see him going back and forth to different sites. Here’s a map http://goo.gl/maps/mc696 for any updatedlocations andphotographs. Walkers provide the most comments and questions, which he’s really enjoying. They talk about Gloucester mostly and they talk about art. He’s been told that his pictures were kaleidoscopic, like stained glass, the quarries, that his red reminded them of some works by Miro, or Braque and Picasso. There have been requests for a crosswalk by their street, house, and business. People driving by have stopped to park and get out of their cars to walk back and look.
Crosswalks in this post include Gorton’s HarborWalk Story Moment #27, Birdseye HarborWalk Story Moment #33, Sea Serpent HarborWalk Story Moment #19, Stage Fort Park HarborWalk Story Moment #42, Katy (from Virginia Lee Burton’s Katy and the Big Snow) HarborWalk Story Moment #30, and Hopper HarborWalk Story Moment #28.
