Shown above, my ideas for the Poughkeepsie Gateway, an “art intervention” for the Route 9 underpass on Main Street, near the Hudson River. The project was sponsored by Arts Mid-Hudson, O+ and the Poughkeepsie Alliance. You can watch a video of the unveiling celebration for winning muralist Risa Tochigi (aka Boogie) here. Just by lucky happenstance, I got to meet Ms. Tochigi on a very hot summer day while she was working on the almost completed Gateway. Cheers!
