Essex Modern City
I appreciate public art. I don’t always understand it but I can honestly say I support it, especially when the art is created by the same people who live and work in the community. What an honor to be able to give back to the community that influenced so many different local artists.
Over the weekend, I came across an event on Facebook. It had a picture of several large art pieces and I couldn’t believe that it was located in San Antonio. It looked different. I was intrigued and decided to attend. I was amazed to see such a creative and unique place on the east side. The talent and imagination that these artists have is astounding and I had to share with everyone.
“Essex Modern City started as an idea and is now more than a mixed-use urban infill project. It’s a social experiment that believes that good design and technology can create a more enriching way to live. The project is an ongoing nebulous that is morphing into a community of people challenging the status-quo. They are the authors, craftsmen and artists that will curate and write the story of the future.” -http://essexmoderncity.com/
