Original Dewey Square Mural by Brazilian artists Os Gemeos

Three weeks from today on Tuesday, September 23rd a new mural will grace Dewey Square.  Murals on this sizable wall (70′ x 76′ ) has raised eyebrows in the past (like Os Gemeos mural shown).  The current installation by Matthew Ritchie entitled Salt and Light is coming down and will be replaced by Shinique Smith abstract.

Smith is currently being featured at a MFA exhibit has said she will use her work, Seven Moons, as her inspiration. I’m looking forward to the new installation which is far more bold and colorful than the outgoing mural which I never really connected.
