City Paint 2 – 27th Street Gallery

On the corner of 2700 South and West Temple, in Salt Lake City, one can find the 27th Street Gallery.  Their parking lot is separated from the neighborhood by a four to five foot wall that runs the entire length of the parking lot.  It appears that the gallery sponsored a street-art exhibition with the Univeristy of Utah in 2011 and donated their parking-lot wall to be used as the canvas.  I’m not an art historian, but my daughter-in-law has a degree in the subject and shared with me that these renderings are of renowned works…but with a little something missing…something left-out of the works, apparentl,y so as not to infringe upon copyright holdings…or something of the sort.  Or maybe it’s so that the murals can be back-drops for portraits, as you might notice a painted set of foot-prints near the bottom of several of the pictures…where one might stand to be the focus of the mural and have their photo taken…maybe.
