Theme change for the North Park Graffiti Wall

The North Park "graffiti wall" takes on a new life as artists work at a theme change from Where the Wild Things Are to "Old Town Cartoons." Every other year, the home owner who erected the privately owned concrete sound attenuation wall at Warman Road and Empress invites select graffiti artists to ply their skills and display their work along one of Saskatoon's busiest traffic corridors. What was initially a concern for a community taken by surprise seems to have become a cherished neighbourhood treasure as evidenced by dozens of honking cars and waving drivers who showed their support as artists diligently worked at the transformation today.

A few more at my flickr. There's a great gallery of the previous theme, Where the Wild Things Are, at the Digital Expressions blog if you haven't had the chance to see it. Check out our North Park neighbourhood profile.

I hope that you're enjoying this gorgeous Saskatoon weekend.
