Wow! What an excellent way to share art with the community. Last week I was ruminating on something similiar...the older working class hoods have so much boarded up houses that I was wondering how the city, landlords, and artists could partner to paint, tile, mixed media,,,something, to make the boarded up housing more attractive in their meanwhile, ya know.
