Now You See It, Now You Don’t: Rain Activated Art

On a brick wall of an abandoned synagogue in Hartford, Connecticut, there is a new gorgeous mural that comes and goes with the rain. The image of the oak tree, which is a symbol of American Independence from a famous painting called The Charter Oak by Charles DeWolf Brownell, appears when the bricks get wet and disappears when the brick dries. The tree, designed by Adam Nilewicz, is 30 feet tall and 45 feet wide and was created by weather treating all of the brick surrounding the desired image.
