Herring Cove Beach Concession Stand I.
Simple, functional, Park Service modernism in the service of thirsty and hungry beachgoers who could shade themselves under deep overhangs while waiting for their hot dogs and Coke. The stand went out in a blaze of glory in 2012 as part of the “10 Days That Shook the World” art festival organized by Jay Critchley and Ewa Nogiec. Paul Wirthun created a torn-tape-and-spray-paint mural “to commemorate the happy memories that its use brought so many in the summer.” He added, “The torn tape imagery will act as a resist against the application of another color, as we resist the loss of memories contained in the buildings slated for demolition.”
