Last Wednesday, a new paintjob completely erased the blue and gold artwork on Reeve’s Antiques’ Taft-St. side. The whitewashing, Reeves owner Matt Reeves tells Swamplot, has created a blank canvas upon which a rotating series of new murals will appear over the next few months before a final, more permanent work takes their place.
He didn’t comment on the flying fish now levitating above it all:
On the 2-story, corner portion of the building, shown at top, a few extra brushstrokes register the business’s recent name tweak; it’s now called Reeves Design + Art, a moniker meant to make clear that there’s more than just old stuff inside.
