New Bedford is an amazing city full of ravenous real-life history. Much of our heritage is housed in the New Bedford Whaling Museum, sites associated with the Underground Railroad, public libraries and local galleries.
In keeping with our legacy, we were able to add something new to our legacy: the clever manhole cover.
Japan has mastered art. The South Coast has a sister city, Tosashimizu, and the manhole cover is a masterpiece.
For Manjiro Nakahama, the first Japanese to live in the United States after coming to Fairhaven, there is a direct connection to growing the idea.
This should appeal to local businesses looking for unique advertising such as the resale of Silmo Coffee Syrup. Also, do you see the Patriots and other Boston teams buying branded manhole covers for him?
The famous New Bedford Half Marathon may depict runners ready to start the race. Tavares, Jibreel Khazan, or local luminaries such as cod and scallops can be expertly presented. Do you have wisdom to pour?
In time, other municipalities compete to see who comes up with the best manhole art.
We can make something mundane and ordinary like a manhole cover special that adds yet another enhancement to our community.
That said, turning a habit into something unforgettable requires the will to do it with passion and the desire to live more actively. This also requires stripping away anything that prevents an idea like this from becoming a real history.
These Lego artworks are unbelievably incredible
Are there any of us who haven’t played with Lego at some point in our lives? We may have built a cool house or a nice car, but most of us have built millions of them. We didn’t create a complete work of art with Lego bricks.
Luckily, we have one great artist and his work is coming to Boston. Here’s what you can expect at The Art of the Brick this fall:
