East Boston getting sea wall murals

Liverpool Street in East Boston gets a sea-related mural

Taj Francis of Jamaica paints at 150 Liverpool St.

Greg Cook reports on the Sea Walls project - in which artists are fanning out across East Boston for the second year to paint murals bringing attention to the waters that surround East Boston - and the rest of the city. In addition to East Boston, the New England Aquarium across the harbor will be getting a large mural by Shepard Fairey, best known for his "Hope" and "Obey" works.

I'm sorry to see Shepard Fairey get that big canvas, given his history of helping himself to the work of others while suing others who use his work. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shepard_Fairey#Legal_issues_with_appropria...

Happening now, I have never seen so many Yuppies in line to get on the ship that’s docked in East Boston just to get a drink and a $5 oyster.

The last time you visited Boston the Boston and Transit police pulled a pr stunt and had you arrested at the ICA. I believe all charges were dropped.
