Floodwall art

If you want to read an article on the man responsible for some amazing floodwall paintings in Point Pleasant, W.Va., Portsmouth, Ohio, Paducah, Ky., and elsewhere, check out this story in The Plain Dealer of Cleveland.

Some cities along the Ohio River have been smart enough to have professional-quality artwork on what would otherwise be drab concrete walls. I was in Portsmouth early one morning in August or September and saw some striking work there. The 3-D effect was so realistic you found yourself staring at it in appreciation.
