Visible in the Wet

You know how when it’s sunny there are a million things to do and everyone is super excited about all of them, but when it’s raining nobody gives a damn about anything and they just want to go home and sulk until the sun comes out again?

It would be nice – cool, even – if we had reasons to look forward to the rain.
Not for our gardens, slip-and-slides, or Fred Astaire fetishes, but rather to appreciate some public pieces of art that were only visible in the wet.

Such is the case on an old building’s brick wall in Hartford, Connecticut, where artist Adam Niklewicz created a 30ft x 45ft “Charter Oak” tree – using sealant, stencils, and graphite transfers.

According to Niklewicz, “Public art should embrace the existing environment and work to enrich reality.”
