I think this marks the beginning of it all for me. I took this picture in 2007 at the now defunct Hable Construction brick and mortar on Perry St. in Manhattan. I adored the composition as a whole, but when I focused on each item separately I was a little...uninspired. I realized that the arrangement and display of these photographs and ephemera was more important than the pieces themselves. That's when my crush on art walls started to really blossom. Today, I'm happy to say that my little crush has grown into a full-fledged relationship as I have this blog and the artwallonline site to show for it. It's a special day. We are... "going public," so to speak. I'll be celebrating this evening in front of my own art wall with a glass of red and some dark chocolate. Care to join?
