The snow has finally melted away uncovering the sidewalks and revealing things. I’ve always found it curious that people like to use the bases of lamposts as a canvas. In our neighborhood, it is a common sight to see embellished lamposts.
The master of the adorned lampost is Jim Power, aka, the Mosaic Man. Jim is a neighborhood artist that has been working in the community for decades. You can learn about him and support his on-going project by going to The Mosaic Man – Jim Power and his Mosaic Trail.
Hello Iliana, I just love all your stuff you publish from The nest! Here is an image of Jim as a middle aged, strong, controversial, anti drug artist/activist!can you put that image up? i just about am as home sick as i can get! never mind that I love my life down here since it’s a place I can survive and get out strong! It still is by ‘Doctor’s Order’ that I am here! Hope to start heading north in the middle of May… keep up the positive info, Love to you and your family, Marlis
So glad you are reading Marlis. Can’t wait to see you.
Dear Ileana – I’m with Marlis! I love viewing your Loisaida Nest posts of our beloved ‘hood, always. The lampposts are so sweet, as is the photo of Jim Power beside the “GANGSTER” lamppost! I have some photos of art along the bikeways I’ll share with you when I get a chance. Would love to see you soon! xoxo, Elizabeth
