Preserving Urban Art

While I wait for my cousins’ guest blogging from New Orleans this coming week rich with images from their photography and culinary adventures, I stumbled upon a wonderful story From Ron Walker about New Orleans sign painter Lester Carey and the effort to preserve his work. I have a weakness for weathered hand-painted signage, marveling at what nature can create with layers of images over time. Check out the whole in-depth profile at No Notes and please visit the Facebook page for The Society to Preserve the Art of Lester Carey.

My day is full of coincidences. We both had something in our blogs today about Louis Armstrong. Great street art.
