I was excited to see this sublime public street art that’s part of the 2017 @vanmuralfest.
I love what @tavukciyan
painted in the mural, titled “Abstraction”. This also resonates with me because one of the basement jazz clubs I’m writing about in my book existed just steps from here in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Three years ago, @rizealliance
let me go down rickety stairs to see the original space that housed the Cellar jazz club before it was demolished to make way for their huge condo development. That was an interesting experience - I could sense the jazz ghosts. This year Rize and the Mural Fest sponsored a competition, which led to this mural being created. I had to take a shot of @mileswong
- a fine jazz drummer who appreciates abstract expression - striding by. #art_ru #whpdynamic #vanmuralfest
