Photographed on August 21, 2017, just minutes before the wall was whitewashed to make way for new art. (The vertical blue and yellow tinting is from the sun shining through a stained glass awning over the alleyway). Artist unknown.
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.

Modica Way in Cambridge is host to all types of street art: murals, graffiti, stenciled messages promoting social justice and other political causes, and the sort.

These is no sense in trying to make sense of this nonsense.
