“Contemporary Views of Tremont” Debuts in late April
Tremont’s first outdoor Art + History Museum has been expanded to include an additional one dozen prints. The new display—entitled “Contemporary Views of Tremont”—includes digitally-reproduced renderings of Tremont street scenes (e.g., Lincoln Park, Christmas Story House, area churches) by local artists such as Tim Herron, Glenn Murray and Brian Pierce. These artworks will join the original exhibit on the southeast corner of Professor and College Avenues: more than 40 watercolor, oil, line-art and postcard images of old Tremont.
The project is a joint effort launched by Tremont West Development Corporation (TWDC) Arts Committee, the Tremont History Project and the Tremont Central Block Club. All pieces are high-resolution, waterproof, digital prints designed for 24/7, 12-month exposure. The display is fully lit and protected by closed circuit security cameras.
