A halloween poster piece entitled Cry Baby Bridge for the West Bottoms district of Kansas City. Another piece completed at the Academy. It was based on an urban myth about a woman who is pregnant and not married. She fears her families disapproval so she throws herself and her baby off of a bridge. Tragic. So the legend goes, that if you go to the bridge and sit and wait, you will hear a baby crying from underneath it. OoOoOOOOooo
p.s. the shadows of the telephone poles on the building are also symbols for crosses, marking the grave site of the mother and child. Enjoy:)
