Beyond Walls – Lynn, MA

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)

Thursday Doors: The Brattle Book Shop

The Brattle Book Shop on West Street in Boston is an antiquarian book shop. They have a wide variety and don’t specialize. You could get 10,000 books at $1 each – or – one book for $10,000. They have an alley next door that they use to put out books for sale. After hours, the books are kept in cabinets and the cabinets are painted to look like books and bookshelves. The second image in the gallery, that break in the books is an old chimney.

For the curious, here is a video about the shop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGlmXRAh5cE

Symphonic Street Art


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.
