4. Mosaic Man’s Lampposts Return to East Village
As we reported in mid-August following a private event with Jim Power, the Mosaic Man, his works will return to the East Village as part of the Astor Place Redesign which should conclude in September. Some are already installed so you can check them out now, and it’s expected that a total of ten lampposts will get the iconic artistic treatment. Some readers may recall Power removing his works as part of “Mosaic Massacre 2014,” a pre-emptive strike before the city removed them before the redesign. We’re glad there has been an agreement made between Power and the city and hope more mosaic lampposts will return the East Village in the future.
