Work has been moving along on the Frankford murals. The panels on the building opposite Womrath Park are almost finished. Work on the wall of the building that faces the North end of Womrath Park is underway.
I met Cesar Viveros there this week with two other artists as they were mounting the painted panels and on the prepared surface of the wall. This wall is large and is made up of many individual panels that have been painted previously. The people who participated in the community paint days will be able to recognize what they painted.
Each wall has to be prepared before the panels, made of a strong but thin cloth, are attached. After the panels are mounted, there is some touch up work necessary but you can see from the slide show below that it is already shaping up as a monumental work.
There will be a ceremony in the Spring when the last work is complete. Until then we’ll continue to post updates.
If you happen to go by, feel free to stop and say hello to the artists. They are a friendly bunch and like to talk about their work.
