Charter Oak


Rain activated mural on a brick wall of an abandoned synagogue, in Hartford, Connecticut, designed by sculptor Adam Nilewicz. The enormous design of the famous Charter Oak, a painting by Charles DeWolf Brownell, appears when the wall becomes wet from the rain -or a sprinkler system- and disappears once dry.

Nilewicz and his assistant J.D. Richey prevented the image of the oak tree from receiving the weather proofing treatment by gluing enormous rubber stamp pieces in the shape of the tree to the wall before spraying it.
