Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park opened in April 1995 after 13 years of planning and fundraising by the West Michigan Horticultural Society. In 1990, Fred & Lena Meijer were asked by Betsy Borre for their support, and they embraced the concept of a major cultural attraction centering around horticulture & sculpture. The original vision has turned into a top cultural destination in the Midwest, known internationally for the quality of the art and gardens.
During the weekend of October 14 to 16th my nephew, Robert, and his wife, Lisa, had a short holiday in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They enjoyed several special events and spent a day at the Frederick Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. Thank you Robert and Lisa for sharing your photos from your visit to the Meijer Gardens. Let’s start with inside art.Read More

Little Corona’s Cigar Lounge

Today I’m sharing another mural in New Port Richey, Florida. It is an alligator on the side wall of Little Corona’s Cigar Lounge. No, I haven’t gone inside. I’m not a smoker and try to avoid tobacco smoke. The lounge wasn’t even open at 10 AM when I took photos on the outside. I have not been able to find out the name of the artist who painted the mural but it is a fun painting. It is located on Grand Avenue one block north of Main Street. Below is the front entrance to the lounge.

I live in central Florida in Pasco County northwest of Tampa. Today I’m sharing a beautiful mural in New Port Richey. There are murals on several of the downtown buildings, and they are fun to explore. My favorite is the one at the corner of Main and Bank Street, entitled, “A 1920’s Day on the Pithlachascotee River,” by Keith Goodson, because it uses local people’s faces on the 1920’s characters. The building is on the right in the photo below. The mural starts with signs on the left side facing Main Street. The mural wraps around the health dept. building and down the sidewalk of Bank Street on the right.
