Mural Mapping underway (third survey)

Over three and a half years ago, Greg Maney (Hofstra University) and I began working on the Mural Mapping Project. Every other year, we are using cameras and GPS technology to document and locate all instances of murals, sculpture, memorial gardens, and other forms of public art in West Belfast and the Greater Shankill Road area.

I’ve begun our third survey. With the kind loan of a skateboard from Stu Mullan and some new gear for it from my neighbor Dave Fairman and Fairman’s skate shop, I’ve got wheels.

Over the past few days, I’ve been covering the Shankill Road area.  Many thanks to the kind folks in the area who I’ve met on the streets over the past few days!
