Community Bridge transformed a plain, concrete bridge into a catalytic, large-scale work of public art that engaged the community in its creation. Artist William Cochran and his assistants used permanent silicate paints on all six walls of the bridge to create a highly detailed illusionist painting. “Carved” symbols gathered from thousands of residents and participants from across the USA and 30 other countries appear throughout the artwork, interpreting commonalities and giving the bridge a collective voice.
