I received an email from Mike Kennedy the other day, letting me know I should check out 383 Broadway, because Peg Asensio had created some new window art. Mrs. Asensio has been very involved with art projects in downtown Lorain. She was featured as one of the Ladies of Lorain on Loraine Ritchey’s blog, and was the driving force behind the window decorations downtown over a year ago. Being familiar with her work, I knew I needed to get on this.
Possibly inspired by a program that is working in Cleveland, it involves using decorative boards on vacant houses and buildings, so that it’s not obvious that there’s nobody home. Here’s hoping this is the start of a similar program here in Lorain.
