Bob Diven: "Wall Street" or "How to Drive a Street Painter Up the Wall"
September 1, 2012 - October 10, 2012
Bob Diven paints on the street—literally—in chalk and pastel, creating transitory illusion and fleeting commentary. This award-winning artist converted the walls of the Lore Degenstein Gallery into a 200-foot vertical roadway of temporary art filled with wit, color and startling realism in just two weeks.
