Not long ago I travelled to Miami, Arizona, an Arizona town with a frontier history. The town is mainly a mining town with a folk who are proud of their heritage.
I noticed a sign pointing to the “arts district”. Just off of U.S. Route 60 (north) are many old buildings that have been transformed into artists’ studios and galleries. It is really a nice stroll looking at all the different types of art. Artists have come to this little town because of the opportunity to be able to work and sell.
As we walked down the sidewalk, we began to see pictures on the walls, on the sidewalks or benches. It seemed that most of the paintings were of cats, but there were also a few other animals. I inquired at one of the studios and was told that an artist in the town decided to help with the area beautification by creating these wonderful images – one can about follow them through the whole district.
I have included a photo of one of the images. There are tens of images all worth a photo. So just in case you weren’t aware of it and plan to pass through Miami, Arizona, it’s worth a stop to look. Don’t forget your camera.
