Mural by Vyal One

Along Albany Street on-ramp and walkway. This and other murals were installed for the grand opening of “Underground At Ink Block”, where a parcel of barren land beneath and between elevated HWY I-93 and several on-ramps was transformed into a public park with elaborate landscaping and a number of large murals. The colored stripes on the sidewalk are threaded through all of the walkways in the park.
