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.
