Does this ring a Bell?

Muralist Tristan Eaton has completed his do-over at Fern Street’s Alexander Lofts apartment building downtown.

Not exactly a do-over: The approximately six-story-tall mural is an homage to Alexander Graham Bell, like his last one, but a variation on the theme.

The new one, called The Spirit of Invention, replaces The Spirit of Communication, which was damaged in March, as 40,000 pounds of bricks under it gave way and crashed onto the roof of the neighboring law office.


In August: a work in progress.
