Public Art: Peeps in the Park

It actually started out being called the Pub Alley Project back in 2010. Nancy and I thought it would be cool to have a group of artists paint 2'x4' plywood panels and hang them on the side of the Gulch. 
Unfortunately by March 2011, there was a Glitch at the Gulch and even after we had gotten permission a year earlier we could no longer hang the art panels there.
Les Gilford to the rescue ♥ and he suggested across the street. Thanks to Les , and the owner of the building, we found a home for the 14 art panels on the side of Village Artisans Gallery.
  There they have hung for 3 years through wind, rain, cold and blistering heat.

ALAS after 3 years they are starting to look rather grotty and it is time to remove and replace them. So don't panic if you see some empty spaces during the month of May. The artists will be redoing their panels and  rehung at the beginning of June.


  1. I'm glad I happened upon this. I was just there last week and took pictures of the panels. I just love them :)

  2. oh thanks Holly, glad you enjoyed them Did you see the other art panels the arts council put up on Xenia Avenue next to Speedway? They are FAB.
