Sarah Rutherford and Mr. PRVRT “From the Ruins” in Rochester

When we were in Rochester for Wall\Therapy in July we also caught a new mural going up by local artists Sarah Rutherford and Mr. Prvrt, who have witnessed the fall of some of the city’s titans falter and present this overview possessed with sadness and hope. Titled “From the Ruins” the mural depicts a handful of architectural features and landmarks associated with the city which just witnessed the demolition of an iconic building in the “Kodak Complex” downtown.

Also included are the Art Deco inspired “Wings of Progress” atop one of the city’s most notable skyline features the Depression era Times Square building by archtitects Voorhees, Gmelin and Walker . The artists intend to pay tribute: “The concept echos what is happening in Rochester, especially the downtown,” says Rutherford, “by taking pieces from the rubble and rebuilding a new structure and city.”
