Mural on Con Ed Substation


Richard Haas created this public art project near Hecht Slip, a mural on a Con Edison substation. Haas used oil paints to replicate elements of old photographs of architecture in Manhattan. The mural was redone in silicate paint after 9/11, when the electric company had to break through the wall in order to rewire generators. The project was sponsored by Con Edison and the organization City Walls.

Installed, 1975
