|The facade of the Grant School|
|A detail of the front of the building.|
The building has been vacant for many years and will (soon) be turned into a community centre. In the meantime, it has become an attractive target for vandals. Hence, the boarded up windows.
|The back of the building, with a couple of (ugly) modern additions.|
|What's that on the right?|
|Reindeer in front of a supermoon.|
|This is on a secondary building at the site.|
(Also because he's really cute!)
|Isn't he? (I call this picture "camouflage.")|
|No, really. Isn't he?|
|Yup. He's pretty darned photogenic.|
|Okay, so he has his derpy moments, too.|
|Sheep (looking kind of Stephen King-ish)|
|Manta ray and divers|
|My favourite: elephant.|
I love these pieces. I'm not sure what will happen to them once construction starts -- or once snow flies and the maintenance crews come for snow removal (they have to keep access clear for fire trucks). I hope these works won't be painted over or just thrown out. That would make me sad, though I realize that transience is part of the nature of street art.
In any case, I'll have my eyes out for more of 2419's work.
