Last week, we highlighted a video that gave a little extra speed to the . We must be in a bit of a rush, since this week's video is also blazing through downtown through the wonders of time lapse.
posted this video guide of the route through Wall to Wall, the New London Mural Walk. The gallery says this project was done in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut, City Center District,
city of New London, the , the , Sailfest, and OpSail 2012 CT. New London received a from the Department of Economic and Community Development toward the creation of four new murals in the downtown area.
The video starts on Eugene O'Neill Drive and heads past a line of eight people holding signs spelling, "Did you know New London is home to the largest concentrated mural walk in New England?" It recognizes 11 sites, but gives special recognition to the newbies:
- "Songs For Our City" by Qimin Liu, Mark McKee, and Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts interns; Eugene O'Neill on the building
- "One City Many Cultures" by Russ Cramer, Katie Fogg, Jeff Weaver, and more; rear of the Hygienic Art Park stage
- "Hard Hat Painters" by Troy Zaushny and Mike McNabney; side of
- "Cabinet of Shells" by Peter Good; side of the
According to the video, there are a total of 16 murals on the walk and it takes between 30 minutes and an hour to see them all. Hygienic Art says videographer Kat Burns put the footage together. It doesn't quite hit all of the spots - the New Deal murals inside the are missing because it wasn't open at the time this was shot - but brochures are available at Hygienic Art ot highlight each site.
