Mural Only Shows Up When It Rains

Mural Only Shows Up When It Rains

Adam Niklewicz's public art project 'The Charter Oak' in Connecticut is water-activated, only revealing the image of the tree when it is wet.

Artist Adam Niklewicz‘s 30×45 ft water-activated mural, ‘The Charter Oak’, only reveals itself when wet. The tree, which is an important symbol for Connecticut, was created using water-repellant Rust-Oleum.

The mural is part of the Capital City Canvas public art project along with a companion piece, ‘Walking Around a Tree’, which is a video projection of a young tree slowly rotating. Co.Exist reports that this will be projected onto the wall of the AT&T building in Hartford, Connecticut, each night through to mid-November.

The water mural can be seen whenever it rains, and the artist also installed sprinklers so it can be viewed each day at 3pm. The video below documents the public art project:
