Months in the making, this handcrafted reclaimed wood sign with hand-cut steel steel detail was designed and created by Tao LaBossiere. It was professionally installed this week at 55 Asylum Ave, Hartford. We wish the barbershop owners much success.
We've had a lot going on this summer. We did a bunch of work in the Hartford area, including hand-painted store signage for The Greenway Market, chalk art style illustrations and signage for The Place 2 Be, and now, we're starting on another HUGE outdoor mural for J's Crab Shack in Hartford. Good stuff. Stay tuned!
Led by master artist and Connecticut muralist Tao LaBossiere, the team of artists co-created a large-scale mural that celebrates what home means to them in the City of Hartford’s North End community.
The artists and project planning team would like to thank the people and places of North Hartford that inspired “Welcome Home”.
“Welcome Home” planning team: Thea Montanez of North Hartford Promise Zone, Tao & Amy LaBossiere of The Art of Tao LaBossiere, Patrick McKenna, Gina Muslim and John Thomas of Community Solutions; Ryan O’Halloran and Ron Pitz of Knox, Inc., and Gordon Scott of Scott’s Jamaican Bakery.
