Art in the Dot: Burt Street

…dotted by Bekki

“A mushroom? I thought it was a mortar and pestal.”

It is amazing how many times you can drive by something, without ever really seeing it.  The beauty of this blog is that it has opened my eyes to all the amazing public art that is sprinkled around Dorchester.

On the corner of Washington and Burt

This mural is painted on the side of Los Caballeros Market, 796 Washington Street.  It is a true and honest celebration of food, and the colorful culture it surrounds.  I always thought of it as “the mushroom mural,”  so in a sense – I wasn’t really *seeing* it either; after some astute observations by my fellow DottieHotties, I have realized it is clearly a mortar and pestal.
