Richard Haas: Arcade

About the Exhibition

Richard Haas (b.1936, Spring Green, WI) has created an illusionary architectural mural on the walls of South Street that mirrors and frames the surrounding structures. The design for the 90’ x 45’ façade is an imaginative treatment of the historic Federal structures that fill the surrounding area, with images of the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges in the distance. The Haas wall painting was chosen from an invitational competition sponsored by City Walls, Inc, a public service organization in the 1970s dedicated to integrating the artist and his or her work into the urban environment.
