East Side Bridge Pier Project

The east side of the Bridge Pier Project was complicated on Memorial Day in near 90 degree temperatures. The west side phase, Three Billy Goats Gruff, was completed by me and my Street Art Honors Seminar Students (See my previous post for May 11, 2012). However, in this phase I worked with an all-volunteer crew and they were the greatest! Many thanks to my wonderful group of artists: Shannon Baldauf, Eric Price, Amanda Swann, Susan Hogan, Chris Villamagna, Bekah Karelis, Lambros Tsuhlares, Mia Szabo, Jeremy Morris, Hal Gorby, Marc Harshman, Georgette Stock, Andrea Stock, and Roy Jenree. Here is a slide show of the east side piers as they came to illustrate a series of fairy tales. (These piers are located under the Fort Henry Bridge/I-70, at Main Street, Wheeling, WV. An easy on/off access from Interstate 70.)

    The ‘man behind bars’ is surprisingly amusing.
    I find this YouTube Channel, produced in Wheeling, to be fantastically non-quotidian…
