Surprise Orchid

April 3rd, 2011

My husband is pretty awesome. We had a date night last week – just a simple Indian dinner at a local restaurant, nothing fancy. When I came home from work, I was surprised by this beauty sitting on the coffee table. Lucky me.

Did you create your Christmas cards? Did you use your favorite pictures of the year? A holiday photo? Or did you try to tell a story??

{Deluxe Inn} Lansing Motel Photography

This past summer, the city of Lansing asked graffiti artists to turn the former Deluxe Inn into a work of art before demolition began. I missed the artists actually coming in to participate in the “creative demolition”, but I was able to see it (from behind a fence) when it was near demo day.

I wonder what else is inside

What a cool project for the city! Temporary, but art is like that. Everything is like that. Grand Rapids now has an art contest called ArtPrize that temporarily litters the city of awesome and some not-so-awesome artwork. Either way, it gets people talking, criticizing, and critiquing what they may not have noticed before. Got to love that.

See more graffiti and photography work from other artists on flickr, tagged “deluxeinn”.
