I lived in an apartment on this one block street, Woodrow Place, along the Assiniboine River in Winnipeg. Somewhat dilapidated, all of the homes on the street had private riverfront access.
I painted the views of the river from my neighbours homes. All of these homes were owned by one person who recently sold them with the intention to build riverfront condos. Before impending eviction, we threw a block party to celebrate the people who live here.
The painting surfaces are found corrugated sign board, often used for real estate signs, and were installed in corresponding front yards for the block party.
