This weeks travels in "around my town" we went off the beaten path to some local artesian galleries. I know when one thinks of a gallery it is usually indoors. Although the local Library does in fact host these too. I thought I would share some of the outside ones since they represent a great conversational piece that has in many ways reshaped the old buildings within the City limits.
Each building in and of itself houses a story from Jamestown N.Y. history.
These are an amazing back drop for some amazing art. I have always been drawn to the local industrial buildings. Many look at them with no appreciation and want them to be demolished. I look at them as a photograph just waiting to be taken.
So whoever came up with the idea to "brighten up" the buildings by having them show off art is pure brilliance. Now people can stop looking at character flaws (old buildings) and appreciate artwork. Plus, it's FREE!
Do you have any similar "art galleries" in your area?
How would you like your artwork displayed outside?
Do you think it adds character to these buildings??
Did I mention Jamestown N.Y. is mentioned numerous times by a famous actress who grew up near here? Lucille Désirée Ball?? Yes, I have kind of left this out because I wanted to dedicate some posts in her honor as I brought you all "around my town". Anyone else watch I Love Lucy: The Complete First Season?? Anyone know who she is??
