If you've ever stepped foot in the East Village, you've probably seen Jim Power's work. Bedazzled around lamp posts and trash cans, his art has been brightening up the neighborhood since Avenue A was adventurous, B was brave, C was crazy and D was deadly. Now Elvis Maynard, a film student at Hunter College, has made a documentary both honoring Jim's work and following the ever-controversial change that has come to the neighborhood in the past years. At his peak, Jim had over 65 lamp posts decorated in the city, though he never got funding for his work. He describes his trail of mosaics as "a nice thing people would enjoy and it would make people feel good." The film also has a chance to be aired on PBS on Saturday night, so go vote for it!
