Sometimes you have to follow your heart, no matter how much sense it does or doesn’t make. For Portland-based artist Jess Mudgett an abandoned building in the middle of the Nevada beckoned. Driven past a million times, by a million people who never gave this structure a second thought, Jess saw something that they didn’t: possibility.
So he hopped in a car and drove a couple thousand miles to the middle of absolute bumfuck nowhere with some friends, boards, and paint to convert a random isolated building into a bonafide piece of art. One man’s trash is another man’s canvas, or somethin’ like that. Watch and get inspired.
