The Harrison Center located on Deleware , just north of Downtown is one of my favorite stops on First Friday. It is filled with lots of small galleries featuring the work of artists in glass, paint and sculpture.
There are even some interesting works outside. Sometimes I look at an abstract piece and wonder, is it really art or just a pile of junk. But if the piece makes me linger, look at it from many sides, wonder about the construction, and what the artist was thinking as they built it. for me, it is art.
