Rochester...my lovely town was one of the lucky recipients of this project and I had a blast walking all around town finding and photographing all seven of our displays. It made for some lovely walks.
In no particular order, here's what I found...
First stop was Talulah Belle Shop at 114 W. Third Street:
On to my 3rd stop at Lytle Pharmacy at 340 Main Street:
My 4th stop was the lot where the weekly Rochester Farmers Market is held. No specific sign was available for a photo, but it's near 3rd and Water Street.
My 5th stop was at Rochester Mills Brewery at 400 Water Street:
The 6th stop was at the Royal Park Hotel at 600 E. University:
I've decided I liked "Reading the Story of Oenone" best, but I have felt a strong connection to young Princess Sophia. This was likely the portrait painted to find her a husband and you can't help feel for this young innocent soul.
I loved this program and hope the DIA continues it for years to come. It's is just lovely seeing great art around town. Also note that this same event is happening in Howell, Novi, Romeo, New Baltimore, Sterling Heights, Manchester, St. Clair Shores, Livonia, Milan and Brooklyn. If it shows up in your town, make sure you take a walk and visit them. Might also be a good idea to visit the DIA soon as well.
Shame on the low-life who put a cigarette out in the middle of Princess Sophia's forehead. Truly...you have no class. (I was glad I able to re-touch my photo and restore her to her true beauty.)
