Soldiers, Cupcakes, Huntress, And An Amalgamation

Space One Eleven has a very sweeet spot in our hearts, and they *always* have the most interesting windows in Birmingham — really compelling art.

On September 11, their “The Infanttree Project” opened, and the exhibit will be up through March 2016. It includes this piece by Larry Thompson, a professor at Samford:

This is called ‘The Presidents’ Rug’ which is 10′ in diameter and is made up of plastic soldiers

Really striking in person.
