What at first looks like nothing as much as an advertisement suddenly becomes something grander and more mysterious, a hand-painted love letter at billboard size. Combining community activism and public art, Powers and his team of sign mechanics collaborate with a neighborhood's residents to create visual jingles, sincere and often poignant affirmations and confessions that reflect the collective hopes and dreams of the host community. This book gathers the artist's powerful public art project for the first time, including murals on the walls and rooftops of Brooklyn and Syracuse, New York ; Philadelphia ; Dublin and Belfast, Ireland ; San Paolo, Brazil, and Johannesburg, South Africa."@en ;
