Completed Crosswalk Art Adds to Cultural District's Flair
The BLVD Cultural District's first crosswalk art project is complete! The art installation is a series of murals by The Art of Chase in the intersection crosswalks of The Blvd and Ehrlich Avenue.
This highly trafficked crosswalk has been beautified by art that adds to pedestrian safety by drawing extra attention to the crossings at that intersection.
The Art of Chase is known for his quirky and humorous paintings that create disruption in our day-to-day-lives. Chase used the City’s existing road marking stencils to create the unique crosswalk murals. The symbols, lettering, and arrows are patterned and layered to create eye-catching graphic artwork that feels strangely familiar until the viewer realizes that the artwork is a mash-up of roadway signage —intentionally crafted to bring a whole new meaning to the term ‘street art’.
