October 10-20th, 2017: Reincarnation of the mural is happening as part of the Wide Open Walls mural festival. I’ll be working most mornings, from 7:30 to about 10:30 or 11, depending on the heat factor. See blog for updates.

This is a digital file of the original art, created for Railfair, 1999. It is a digital mural printed with automotive paints, guaranteed to last 5 years. These were the days before photoshop- hard to believe. Each brick was painted by hand. The image below was taken in 2007. On a west facing wall, it had started to show signs of fading. The bottom image was taken in 2016, by which time the colors had faded drastically. It is with great pleasure that I’ll be repainting the mural for Wide Open Walls 2017.
