Carrie, a teacher for the Juxtaposition Arts Environmental Studies program, offered to connect me with a couple of her students for a tour of the neighborhood surrounding Juxta. Charles and Bakari were fantastic guides and they brought me to 1808 Emerson Avenue N, a building which is getting an artistic treatment from Bronx-based professional muralists, Tats Cru.
I was able to take a photo of three BG183, B10 & Nicer. I was short on time and they were busy painting but I would have loved to have talked to them about their process (I was told they started the day prior). They are going to be part of an event sponsored by Wet Paint: Artists Materials & Framing on July 23 in St. Paul.
I attempted my first 365 photo project in 2011. I made it to Day 246.
