An Art Wall, Van Buren and West 2nd Avenue, As A Collaboration Form Of Art, Eugene, Oregon
Wall comes from Latin vallum meaning "...an earthen wall or rampart set with palisades, a row or line of stakes, a wall, a rampart, fortification..." while the Latin word murus means a defensive stone wall. English uses the same word to mean an external wall and the internal sides of a room, but this is not universal. Many languages distinguish between the two. In German, some of this distinction can be seen between Wand and Mauer, in Spanish between pared and muro. [from wikipedia]

A blue spray painted board highlighted this section of the wall. Here, whatever was behind the wall was covered with a tin roof.

A motorcycle was parked and over time became an element in an art wall. In addition to license plates, an end-wise street sign read, "Echo Hollow."

An empty frame enclosed the words, "Life Is." Below that was an old Z sign. Cars parked in the parking lot were reflected in the glass panes of a weathered white door.

A wall was constructed to separate the parking lot from whatever was behind the wall. From a distance, the wall appeared to be made of scraps, but up close it was clearly a series of works of art. The door here, for example, was non functional, but when placed next to a piano's metal guts, formed a pleasing esthetic.

The decorated wall ended at a corner which highlighted a peace symbol under the word, "Eugene." To the right you can see how the art fence gave way to an industrial chain link fence. It was on this chain link fence that portraits internal link were hung.
