Back to the Harwood Arts Center...

I always appreciate the art installations around (& on) the building. Sometimes there is no need to go in...

There is always a rotating Fractal Foundation image on the north side of the complex, the current one is the top image above. A previous Harwood Fractal is here. Other fractals can be found here...

The Harwood Arts Center, below, began life in 1925 as a Methodist boarding school for girls. The historic building is a two-story H-shaped configuration with a red brick facade & Neoclassical Revival detailing. Neoclassical tends to emphasize the separate identities of each of its parts. If you’ve ever been in The Harwood, you know how the H-shape creates different separate but connected inside corridors: one section houses the Escuela del Sol elementary school, other sections have artists’ studio spaces; there is a large cafeteria in another section, and gallery spaces in other corners of the building. The Harwood has evolved into a vibrant artists’ community, serving a broad audience of youth & adults with a variety of programs.

Below is an image of the current winter Harwood Yard Art exhibition in front of the building, consisting of adobe blocks painted pink & fronted with thin mirrors that reflect the scene back to the viewer. As the complex isn't currently open to the public, I could not find who the artist was to credit the piece. Further below is an image of one of the decorative tile benches, with a view of the current fractal.
