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 sun face drawn on a round piece of orange wood, was attached above a blue face spray painted on an automobile's door. Words on the car's hood read, "Sky blue." To the right, blue spray paint decorated a brown door.

A Wall
(12 of 13) (1438 views)

Van_Buren_St_and_W_2nd_Ave_Eugene_Oregon_20190129_122826_C19_0085.jpg

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.

Peaceful Corner

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.
