Wordless Wednesday 28: The East Side Gallery
July 8, 2014 23 Comments
Continuing with lazily sharing photos from our travels earlier this summer, I bring you some art.
The East Side Gallery is a memorial on a long (1.3km) section of the old Berlin Wall and is the world’s largest open air gallery. Originally painted in 1990 (the same year most of the wall was demolished after people became allowed to cross the boundary in November 1989), the paintings were heavily damaged by vandalism and restored/partially repainted by the original artists in 2009. The vandalism continues, but the gallery is still incredible to see.
But that’s a lot of words for Wednesday. Let’s get on with the photos.
I bring you the dogs of the East Side Gallery.
If you’re ever debating going to Berlin, just stop. GO.
