A glowing example of arts collaboration - after the renovation, the Opera House had big, beautiful, but bare walls. They needed art. They contacted Kate Barnes at Common Street Arts. She came over and looked at the situation. Then she expertly paired the Opera House with the work of an artist known to her. The colors of the paintings and the Opera House complement each other perfectly. No cost to the Opera House. The paintings are for sale. The artist gets exposure, and maybe some sales. It's a win-win-win situation. Oh yeah, and the public gets to see great art before the shows and during intermissions. So that's really a win-win-win-win situation. And later, perhaps the works displayed will rotate. Each piece has a price and the CSA contact information to seal the deal.
