Sign Painting


While walking around the city this weekend I came across men on scaffolding high above painting a sign on the side of a building. I was glad to see that the art of sign painting still exists. This one was on the corner of 23rd and Park Ave. I have always loved old, faded signs on the side of buildings advertising something long forgotten, or when they tear down a building and an old sign decades old sees the light of day again. I didn't know ASIFA-east had the budget for something like this either. Very cool… I am looking forward to the festival on May 3rd.
