Currently, the only space open to the public is the Boileryard. On Friday nights, visitors are welcome to this open area in Camp North End to enjoy music, beer, and food trucks.

And some awesome art as well.

The folks behind Camp North End invited several artists to the Boileryard to paint murals on the rolling dock doors found throughout the open area. When we heard Patch Whisky was involved, we had to check things out.

They were awesome! There was such a wide variety of styles on display. One of our favorite murals was by Emma Isaacs. According to Camp North End's Varian Shrum, Isaacs is a sixteen-year-old student and she describes the piece as a Model T "waiting for people to come back."
