Back in the day we ate there, now we fate there for a beckoning future, based on the handy work of Yovan Barraza Jr. whose recently completed mural on the side of the old Ocean Sea Grill building Downtown has transformed what? Into wow!
The artistic community in Downtown Bridgeport (yes, it’s a neighborhood, please respect Downtown an upper D) has taken on a life of its own.
Yovan isn’t new to this, he’s been at it for decades yet he persists, his artwork illuminating buildings and bodies and brains, because mostly creativity evolves from pain.
So as my friend Tom Kelly often salutes: here’s hoping all your pain is champagne.
Let’s raise a glass, this holiday season and beyond, to Bridgeport’s artistic community.
