  • Northeastern is turning its campus into a canvas

    Boston.com - 06/13/2015

    Edgar Allen Poe and John Lee Hooker recently showed up on Northeastern University’s campus.

    No, they’re not back from the dead. The pair was reincarnated by stencil graffiti artist Jef Aérosol—the pseudonym of Jean-François Perroy. He’s been painting murals all over Northeastern this week as part of President Joseph Aoun’s public art initiative. Northeastern is turning its campus into a canvas.

    The art isn’t just for Northeastern students to enjoy. The locations of Aérosol’s murals, as well as works by previous visiting artists like El Mac, Daniel Anguilu, and Shepard Fairey, can be experienced by passers-by.

    “It’s about creating art for the entire public community to enjoy, not just Northeastern but all of Boston,” said Renata Nyul, the university’s assistant vice president of communications. “We’re an open, urban campus.”
