Capturing the Vibrance of Bridgeport: Aerial Photography of the Peacock Alley Mural Project
Updated: Dec 23, 2022
The Peacock Alley Mural Project is a public art installation located in Bridgeport, CT, near the Arcade Mall and Read's artspace. The project is a collaboration between Groundwork Bridgeport, Colorful Bridgeport, Bridgeport Arts & Cultural Council, BPT Creates, and The Trust for Public Land, and aims to bring color and vibrancy to the 5,000 sq ft walkway alley behind the Historic Arcade Mall and the Reads Art Space. In August 2019, I had the opportunity to participate in the project and contacted BPT Creates to request authorization to capture aerial photos of the completed mural using a drone. After some correspondence and a quick phone call, I asked him to reach out to confirm when the mural would be complete, so I could get authorization to fly my drone over to take a few aerial photos.
I enjoy the sense of discovery that I am experiencing while doing these photos. I to take a look around for things I otherwise wouldn't have noticed. Bridgeport is experiencing such a vibrant resurgence, and it's all there to experience!! I enjoy seeing the city I grew up in, working hard to make it inviting and beautiful. I'm glad I could help people see it from a different point of view.
