Jeremy Klaszus @klaszus The weird East Village decals of people in water are being removed—on this pier at least #yyc
Zoey Duncan @zoeywrites @klaszus Looking forward to whatever replaces them. They weren't terrible, but certainly weird.
Aaron Stayner @BigtimeYYC @zoeywrites @klaszus Thank goodness, never cared for those.
Aaron Stayner @BigtimeYYC @zoeywrites @klaszus Besides we need something colourful under those bridges. Grey and white didn't cut it.
Jeremy Klaszus @klaszus @BigtimeYYC @zoeywrites They were, uh, different. I agree — something with colours would be good there!
Well, I kept on walking over the Langevin Bridge. And when I got to the other side, I found myself underneath the enormous grey concrete flyover. Here's how it looks:
I used to live in Bridgeland, and I still have the same whimsical thought I had then: THIS is the spot that's crying out for a mural!!!
Just take a look at the flyover, and then imagine all that grey concrete covered with something like Dean Stanton's fabulous colourful Sunalta School mural (right).
I'm looking forward to the new RiverWalk public art. But if I can ever figure out a safe way to do it, I'd love to propose a colourful facelift to the underside of the flyover.
