Each year, we lose some good outdoor art in Winnipeg. For the year indicated, here's a last look at, a last goodbye to some of the artwork that has disappeared that year.

31 Marlene Street   

The Wizard and the Tree. Tom King, 2002; South Face. Painted over in 2003.

Original notes on this wall:

Jane Brenner: "That's Tom's wall. He wasn't very impressed with the wall after he did it last year. We provided the spray paint and 1 gallon of base coat and that was it. We supplied it all for them and they do it for free. The deal with them is any tagging on Marlene Street, they have to clean it all up first; they either paint over it or scrub it all off with graffiti removal; once they've done that, then they get to paint a wall."

Tom King: "This one was straight out of my head. When it was finished, I was happy with it at the time, but not now. I've seen it too much. I want to see something new there now. I like doing Murals that are really surreal. Cityscapes have been so done. I'm sick of seeing things that have been done. I want to see something new. This is the new millennium; let's think about it and evolve art to the next level already!"
