PHOTOS: Boston “Art Attack” Converts Bus Shelters to Bank of America Foreclosures

  

Concerned citizens launched a city-wide “art attack” in Boston today, converting a host of bus shelters into Bank of America foreclosures to showcase the devastating results of the financial giant’s predatory practices. Life-size images of boarded houses, squatter occupied bedrooms and empty nurseries now dot high-traffic areas from Hyde Park to Revere – including many of the communities hardest hit by foreclosure and eviction.  Each installation includes a large realty sign reading “This foreclosure brought to you by Bank of America.”

 

PHOTOS OF SEVERAL BofA FORECLOSURES/SHELTERS ARE ATTACHED, WITH A LIST OF CORRESPONDING LOCATIONS BELOW.

 

The “art attack” follows weeks of eviction blockades, protests and other demonstrations at the homes of Bank of America executives and local bank branches across the commonwealth. The effort is set to swell Friday with a massive march on Bank of America’s Massachusetts headquarters.

 

High-resolution stills are available. Call (617) 286-4430 or email Jason@massuniting.org for additional information.
