Sunday, June 9, 2019: Fresh Paint Springfield Wrap

A dozen artists — one from as far away as Australia — assorted friends, and a supporting cast of residents from ages 3–103, have just finished making Springfield a little more lively and a lot more beautiful than it was two weeks ago. From May 26 until today, nine previously nondescript walls bordering on eyesore status were transformed into vibrant murals through the alchemy of artistic vision and labor, and countless gallons and spray cans of paint — not to mention, a box store full of brushes, rollers, and masking tape, and enough paint-splattered clothes to start a new fashion label. You can get the full picture at Fresh Paint Springfield but in the meantime, here is Pixetera‘s admittedly limited take on what amounted to one big paint party. (Click on images to enlarge.) 

Mural artists in order of appearance:

#2-5: Wane One

I don’t know what I find more objectionable in the second photo: the contents of the cartoon itself, or that anyone thinks this is appropriate to display on the window of a car that’s parked in a residential neighborhood where children pass by on a daily basis — in close proximity to a church no less.
