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.
