Day and Night Where the Sidewalk Ends

Day and Night Where the Sidewalk Ends

Inspired by the classic children’s poem “Where the Sidewalk Ends” by Shel Silverstein, local artist Charity M. Counts and her 5-yr-old son, Max Hopkins, collaborated on a design to transform the north and south sides of the 29th Street and I-65 underpass into two whimsical worlds.

The north side depicts a child’s transition to imaginary lands from a dreary reality, a relatively literal interpretation of the experience as described in Silverstein’s poem and featuring elements designed by Max.
