We came across this fabulous film while searching for similar tiled mural projects to the ones 6274 produce.
Jim Powers aka the Mosaic Man has been transforming the Lower East Side of Manhattan with mosaics, one lamppost at a time since the early 80s.
Around fifty of his mural lamp posts were destroyed by the Giuliani administration to “tidy up” the NYC street scape. Many of the murals were saved through public response and out cry.
Now Jim spends his days building up his murals again one day at a time.
What a great public art Story.
What do you think?
Jim you can have a job with 6274 Public Art any time!
