Along the same stretch of wall as Sam Rodriguez’s piece is the first #walltherapy mural by OMEN, who fought the gusts of wind to lay down the image of this lovely lady. Photo from Josh Saunders @HelioSun Photography.
The third mural to see a quick completion was Jarus, who shared with Rochester a dark haired woman and her feline companion, shrouded in green mist on a floating couch. Photograph by Tomas Flint.
Not all murals taking place this year at WALL\THERAPY is of the female form. Ernest Shaw, Jr. added the colorful visage of Jimi Hendricks to the historic Susan B. Anthony neighborhood of Rochester.
