Abbeville: Big Art Toy


Mural in progress, Abbeville, Louisiana. March 2015.

It's cool to see a mural in the making. Makes me think of how many eons we've been doing such things, going back to caveman times.

In this case, the muralist is Robert Dafford, being assisted by another accomplished artist, Craig McMullen, aka Whoojoo, on a mural in Abbeville, Louisiana.

Mr. Dafford's project in Abbeville is to .... "depict the musical heritage of Abbeville as well as popular local seafood, both of which continue to be major draws for tourism. An oyster can currently be seen on the mural with work on an accordion about to be painted on city hall." (Source: VermilionToday)

Accordion, accordion ...ohhhhhhhh, I see it now!

Not to take one little thing from this lovely mural, but I was completely impressed by the lift machine Mr. Dafford used to maneuver himself and his colleague into place. The video is here:




Here is a collection of Mr. Dafford's work from around the world.

The artists were kind enough to give me a wave as they left "the office" for the day.
