The other day I drove through several small towns. There were some interesting sights.
In one small town there was a mural that covered the entire side of a building.
See the two women on the far right hand side? Notice the door? The woman on the left is actually painted on a door - though the door is hard to see since it is part of a gray building.
When you look closer the concrete bricks make the mural look like a mosaic. I like the yellow dress and hat with the red trim.
This dog reminded me of my own dog, Bailey.
Oh. Here's the REAL Chautauqua Building in this small town. It is surrounded by flood water but is actually in a large city park. Chautauqua referred to a town gathering usually held in a big top tent. These gatherings were popular from about 1890 to 1920 or so. Some towns actually had a special building. This is the only Chautauqua building left in Iowa.
In Sioux City I saw this office building with a more professional mural.
This is really nice.
Not surprisingly, the Sioux City Art Center is across the street. I like the building.
In front of the Art Center is this interesting dog.
Look at quotation painted on the base. I remember this from Bobby Kennedy's funeral.
Later in the day I was driving through another small town and noticed this movie theatre. I love the red marquee and the art deco building. Then I noticed the painted dog.
I think I found the brother to the dog in Sioux City!
Thanks for stopping by.
