With just about 220 days until Capitol Hill Station opens at Broadway and John, the Red Wall is gone. It’s been coming down for months. We told you about the organic, random, artist-by-artist decisions on what comes next for the various pieces of amazing public art that have been displayed on the wall.
The most iconic, most photographed work on the wall will live on, it turns out. But it will live on in pieces. And it could live on… on your wall.
Artist Baso Fibonacci is selling off eight by four-foot panels from his “Capitol Hill mural” for $500 a pop:
The mural that has graced the corner of 10th and John for the past 5 years has finally come down. We were able to salvage 7 pieces from the wall and are selling them for $500 each. Each piece is 8 by 4 ft. First come first serve.
“Email me to purchase one,” the artist adds. You can see the four remaining panels and learn more here.
The 24-foot by 120-foot self-portrait-with-owls mural that dominated most of the East John street stretch of the red wall since 2010 was designed by the local street artist and painted by Zach Rochstad and Japhy Witte.
Thanks to Matt for the tip!
