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.
