public art in the strangest of places

went to atlantic city this weekend, a strange place full of contrasts - the illusion of wealth over serious poverty, mainly. strangely, there was a Peter Max art billboard on the boardwalk. the psychadelic and christ-like mural is out of place among the faux-glitz and practically art-free remainder of the boardwalk. the washed-out color is nice, thou im not sure if this is his intention (his work is usually much brighter) or just a faded print-job. it is significantly better than the blank wall that i understand used to be there.
