A while back I went on a fun, educational, and very cool bike ride that explored some murals in the Design District and West Dallas that had been commissioned by the Dallas Contemporary gallery. At the time, they had a new project going, Inside Out – The People’s Art Project, where they set up a series of photo booths and had people come by to get their photo done. These were then printed bigger than life size and put up at various locations around the city.
I wanted to participate in it, but never was able to put it together – when I could get down to a booth and get my photo shot. I should have tried harder, but time slips.
Anyway, last weekend, on our Stop and Photograph the Roses bike ride, we ran across one of the Inside Out installations. It’s been up a while and it getting long in the tooth, the paper tearing and falling off the wall, the photos fading, time is taking its toll.
Somehow, I liked it even better that way.
