That is the theme for this piece and downtown Lancaster is seeing it's own revitalization right now. I chose to show a traditional form of art for the area-- scherenshnitte or papercutting, which portrays the controversial addition of a skyscraper to the historic skyline of the old Watt & Shand building, along with other references to Pennsylvania Dutch country. Whenever revitalization happens in a city, it usually is accompanied by the cultural arts.
If you're in the area in November, come to see "Art in Alternative Spaces" held by The Creative House of Lancaster, at Rachel's Cafe & Creperie on Queen St. There is an art opening on Thursday, Nov. 6th and I'll be there! I can't wait to see what others are putting up! I hear this is a great place to eat too! Good art, good food... can't beat that!
