Yellow Street Schiedem, Holland, 2003. 950 x 4,5 meters; two layers of latex emulsion paint, applied with an airless machine. The city of Schiedam has been the poorest city in The Netherlands for a long time and still is one of the poorest. This route is supposed to become the new entrance to the city centre. In anticipation to this fact, Schiedam now has its Yellow Brick Road, which -according to the legend- leads to glory and fortune.
