Try a Little Tenderness
My friend Jackson Alves and I painted a mural in Madison WI, idealized and produced by our dear friend Henrique Nardi. The mural aims to reconnect the city with Otis in an uplifting way while honoring his musical legacy. We had three days of painting, friendship, and great heights. We were very happy with the participation of the local community, who was present all the time giving us moral support, kind words, love, and food. Special thanks to Karin Wolf and Nick Malacara for their immense help. Thank you so much to Darcy Haber of Solidarity Realty for giving us the wall to paint and to Ruth Ellisckson for bringing us delicious food. We're also very grateful to Ray Mawst, Pete Hodapp and Lynn Lee who helped us with the painting! The mural is located at 1146 Willy Street, Madison WI. Funded by The Madison Arts Commission. Produced by Henrique Nardi. Photos and video by Henrique Nardi. Created by Cyla Costa and Jackson Alves.
