Jef Czekaj

 Jef Czekaj's large box in front of the central branch library finished in Dec. 2011.

“This switchbox is directly outside of the Children's Room of the Somerville Public Library, so, of course, I wanted to do something about books. A book marching band seemed like a completely reasonable thing to do, but I don't think anyone knew what I was painting until it was completely finished. The switchbox was much bigger than I thought, so I just kept adding more and more characters. Note to aspiring muralists: don't paint your mural in winter! Brrrrr."
