(2007) Mural Installation, with New Mystics collective
An apartment building that had stood for a hundred years, housing countless folks, in its last days was a home to many artists. The New Mystics came together to organize a celebration to release this structure into our memory. Many artists were involved in the creation of this work. Some people worked alone with whole apartments, some joined together and collectively decorated their allotted space. Some lived in their homes until the last moment they could. I chose to paint this hallway. It took me a day and a half painting uninterrupted through the night. We threw a party on the last day of legal habitation.
