found art

bart & i spent saturday afternoon in georgetown; i have wanted to see the graffiti wall for some time & he's been hoping to check in at fantagraphics. as we were looking for the wall, i thought to myself, "this is going to be one of those things that i build up, only to be let down." i was happy to see that the wall is full of bright colors, careful artwork & fun characters. we also had a great time visiting with larry, a long time fantagrapher that offered us tons of input & stories about the books & the artists.

on our way back to the car, we stopped to see a window display unlike no other - a diarama of sorts. the beautiful story of a girl, her uncle's time machine & the coincidental butterfly, the story of belle & wissell co. i was confused at first. was this a simple art installation? a storefront? it turned out to be part of the belle & wissell design studio's identity. the whole thing is genious if you ask me.

we missed the art walk because of dinner reservations, but will definitely be heading down next month.
