More and more I’ve noticed mural art that brings life to vacant store fronts and buildings around New York City. It adds vibrancy, entertainment and insight about what’s on the Artists’s mind

This exhibit on Frederick Douglas Boulevard near 125th street in Harlem stood out. It was a museum like curated display of multimedia art. It called out to me to stop and study and admire the shadow boxes recessed in a boarded up store front. This work was a mirrored sculpture which reflected images from across the street.  

In a beautiful way, the exhibit morphed the side walk into a gallery, my private gallery, one with no queues, so I could appreciate it fully. In the midst of a busy city block the Artists gifted me a sanctuary where I lived in the moment, felt gratitude and allowed their energy to move me.

When and where do you notice hidden treasures during your travels?
