Street Art // Saturday, July 27, 2013
As the clouds generously give cover from the glaring sun here in Rochester, NY, many artists finalize their walls, while some ambitiously attempt to squeeze in another before they depart. We began the day by walking some old dead train tracks where we caught up with ROA who was painting a baby chick on the side of two abandoned siloes. From there we set off across town to photograph walls painted by a number of artists that includes Lady Pink, Smith, Wise Two, Bile, Range, Change, Pose2, Binho, Ever, Jessie, Katie and St. Monci. More reports from Wall Therapy tomorrow you ask? Yes indeed. Check back then!
