113 W Emma Ave, Springdale, AR 72764-4304, United States
Come downtown & see the latest #famoushardware art installation.
The #famoushardware windows have been brought to life by the artist Amelia Briggs who was commissioned by Creative Arkansas Community Hub & Exchange (CACHE) with funding from the Tyson Family Foundation.
Briggs’ #famoushardware installation—”Pony Gate”—has transformed the windows of the Famous Hardware Store into an uncanny dream of lush embodiments. “Pony Gate” acts as a series of dioramas. Each of the store’s windows illuminate the link between our sense of self and our childhoods.
The installation is 100% storefront exhibition and visible 24 hrs from the sidewalk at 113 W Emma Ave. The installation will be through the end of November.
ABOUT THE #famoushardware ART INSTALLATIONS:
