Art And Industry

Floodwall

As seen here before, there is a section of the Mississippi River flood wall where graffiti is encouraged. In fact, there is an annual Paint Louis event. There are a few gates in the wall to reach industrial sites.

I'm not sure what this structure is for. Cement, maybe, from sand coming off barges. The whole thing has kind of a Mad Max look to it.

I like the painted skyline, though the tags are not so much my thing. Good that there's a place for this though.

Its an unexpected combination indeed.

I wouldn't have thought of that but, you are right, very Mad Max!

This looks so attractive to me, despite it not being a castle...

That's a perfect analogy Bob, the scary art only adds to the illusion.

It does have a stark, slightly dystopian look.
