StreetWorks - Uncompleted Mural
Jose D. Duran
On my way to White Room Monday night, I spotted a man painting a mural along the corner of NE 14th Street and 1st Avenue. It is basically at the entrance of Overtown, right along the corridor were you can find PS14, Vagabond, Ice Palace and the recently boarded up Karu & Y.
It wasn't hard to see what the man was doing. It was 10:30 p.m. and he being aided by numerous spotlights. I left White Room at 11:30 and decided to rush back home to get my camera and grab a few snapshots of the man working, but on my way home I saw he had packed up and left. I returned Tuesday afternoon to get a glance of what he was working on and noticed it's still a work in progress. I guess I'll have to revisit it at the end of the month and see how it turns out.
