Exposing Color

We have looked past the hurdles and gotten into the wildly fun, wickedly dusty, and physically daunting stage of demo.

This old theater/warehouse burned possibilities into my brain almost 40 years ago. I walked by it and wondered what was inside. Why was it not busting with life? Returning to Lambertville decades later to find it unchanged sparked my imagination all over again. Blind to the uphill battle I was about to climb, I put on my boots. A year of applications, forms, money and meetings led me to the other side of conjecture. Another year of clearing out 50 decades of storage, and an unwanted education in the complexities of easements/law-suites/and greed moved us to the finish line. We have arrived. While the fly in the ointment still swims, we have looked past the hurdles and gotten into the wildly fun, wickedly dusty, and physically daunting stage of demo. The architect is pouring even more magic into the assembly space plans and I could not be more inspired by the possibilities this old building holds. Stephen Harris is a local photographer, friend, and supporter of the arts. He joined us last weekend while we exposed colors hidden beneath the surface for over 1/2 a century. Here is a link to his flicker page with some great shots.  Once the nails and debris are cleared away we will host a small open house for any community members who want to see this old gem before the work really gets underway.
