Connecticut based artist, Adam Nilewicz, has created one of the most innovative outdoor pieces that we have seen all year. Standing 30 feet tall against an old synagogue in Hartford, Connecticut, the invisible mural only appears when it rains. Nilewicz created the image–which is taken from a well known painting by Charles DeWolf Brownell called “The Charter Oak“–by weather treating the surrounding bricks.
“Public art should embrace the existing environment and work to enrich reality. The blank slates (almost screens) of the two downtown buildings invite visuals that give counterbalance (nature) and meaning (historical context). The image of the Charter Oak speaks to both. The projection of the new tree speaks to the continuum.”
