Most people who pass by it on their daily commute,  probably have no idea.  It’s 60 by 13 feet.

I tried the panorama setting again on my new iPhone.

 

 

 

 


Mona Lisa Lying Down on her Side in Short North Alley

Friday afternoon we (guests from Florida) and my brother and sister,  explored the neighborhood of Short North after we ate lunch in  German Village. When asked what we should be sure to see, a woman recommended this painting of Mona Lisa. (painted by artist Brian Clemons)  We had fun trying to find it, asking several residents where she was……uh, oh, yes, I know I have seen her….not far….hmmmmmm

A short diversion from the task at hand . We had coffee at Cup of Joe afterwards.

All set for the wedding on Saturday afternoon.


Mourners for a Phone Booth?

At the bottom of Pacific at Kincaid St, headed to Arlington from Garfield- I saw this artwork.  I haven’t seen it before. I am hoping someone can tell me who the artist is. It was unexpected. We ask students- What is the artist saying?

Hope someone can identify the artist for proper credit.
