Rain Art is comprised of drawings on the sidewalks on Main Street in special “hydrophobic” paint that is clear and invisible, but becomes visible when it gets wet. When it rains, drawings will magically appear. The artwork would be a “discovery” for pedestrians, creating an imaginative moment in the day. Up and coming Portland Artist Corey Lunn was commissioned to create the art.
“His work constructs and reflects bizarre, tangential and absurd narratives. Depicting surreal landscapes, hybrid animals and the foibles of the common man, Lunn’s worlds are made up with equal parts dark comedy and social commentary,” says the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art.
