PTown's Public Art, Opus 1

In 1997, Provincetown artist, writer and humorist Jackson Lambert painted this wonderful mural
on an ugly little cinder block building on Freeman Street, behind the old public library.

Jackson Lambert's 1997 mosaic mural on Freeman Street includes a self-portrait of the artist at work on 
a painting of the very same mural, so he's a character in the mural, painting a canvas of the mural, while 
he is actually painting the mural, which stretches all around the building. Stop by and enjoy this clever bit of humor in a remarkable piece of public art.
