I Wish This Was … an art corridor

I Wish This Was is a weekly series of badly Photoshopped images that transform ignored, vacant lots and properties in Orlando into something the City Beautiful can be proud of. 

This week we’re spending our wish on making our 408 underpasses a little more aesthetically pleasing. The parking spaces under the interstate downtown will be converted post-I4 Ultimate construction, into a Bridge District (or as Mayor Dyer recently revealed at the Canvs anniversary party, “Under I”)with better lighting, gathering spaces and a number of other other additions, but what about the other underpasses?

One of our readers wrote us last week stating,”… I drive thru the underpass on Summerlin on a daily basis. Currently the underpass is dark, stark and boring. It’s a blank canvas just begging to be improved by public art.” And we couldn’t agree more.

Applying a transfer of a fancy Monet or installing a layer of Plexiglas with a Chihuly pattern over some lighting could transform a dank underpass in no time.
