My lobby design for Portland's Third Rail Repertory production of Belleville

Guess what Portland project I was asked to tackle? The lobby of the CoHo Theater for the current Third Rail Repertory production, Belleville!

Thanks to my darling and daring friends, core company members of Third Rail Reportory, Amy Frankel, Mark Valadez (Sound Designer), Rebecca Lingafelter (cast member, "Abby"), Isaac Lamb (cast member, "Zach"), I painted the walls to represent the city sanctioned "Graffiti Street", in Belleville, France.

I was honored to get a pre-opening sneak peek and this play is skin-crawling good. Still thinking about it.

See it, and my work, before they both cease to exist, before  April 18th 2015.
