This July, muralists from Greater Boston and places around the world congregated in Lynn, on Massachusetts’ North Shore, to bring the industrial town’s brick walls to life. In just 10 days, 15 new murals popped up downtown — all within walking distance — during the Beyond Walls Mural Festival. (http://www.wbur.org/artery/2017/07/31/lynn-murals)
This mural in Cambridge’s Central Square pays tribute to Marc Chagall.
This mural, which pays tribute to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, is in a parking lot behind Symphony Hall. I am not sure of the story that this tells. I do know that the middle image features long time conductor Seiji Ozawa.
On previous trips to Montreal, we’d always spent our time downtown or perhaps up on Mount Royal or along the canal path. Planning for our recent visit, I was reading about some of the neighborhoods in other parts of Montreal. The Plateau neighborhood seemed particularly intriguing being described by Wikipedia as “characterized by brightly coloured houses, cafés, book shops, and a laissez-faire attitude.” We were also given to understand that there is some amazing murals and other wall art. Off we went on a rainy Friday morning to explore.
The reason we stayed in Orlando is that it is within an hour or so of three long rail trails for riding bicycles. These photos were made while we cycled the Withlacoochee Trail. It is about 40 miles / 64 km long but most of these shots were made around Floral City. Many of the murals are on the trail side of Citrus Cycles, though they deal in cycles with a motor on them.
