That's Boston

Never let it be said that popularity or innovation or merit has ever influenced the way Boston has officially reacted to public art.

Oooooh, I know that place! Next to the bowling alley near the Rt. 2 ex-rotary, right? If so, a place that's been empty for years, and years, and years.

It's not that I approve of graffiti art unconditionally. It's more that I find it amusing that Boston officialdom made such a very deliberate and bound-to-be-well-publicized statement of how they view it.

Yes, the "club formerly known as Faces, now known as an eyesore and soon slated for demolition". :-)

Fearey is lucky that his art doesn't have blinking lights.

Banksey Beware. I'm glad they locked him up , cause that particular part of Alston, where the Mass Pike & Railway yards meet is an area of outstanding beauty. They should throw away the key I say !

So let me get this right. The artist is in town for a month, doing work at a known location. The warrants have been in effect for two weeks. And they arrest him and hold him so he cannot attend the opening of his show?

Sigh.
