Sometimes I am slow to post about art I see frequently, thinking that I’ll have plenty of chances later. The 4 Way Market in Lockeland Springs is just such a place. For years there were these goofy images on the front, including a humorously bad image of an American Express card. Remember the story about the botched restoration of a painting of Jesus? The American Express Centurion that once graced 4 Way’s facade was about on that level. You can see a little of what I mean here and on their Yelp page. But back in September, before I ever blogged about it, 4 Way got a splashy new overhaul, and the older work was lost. But there sure is a lot more color now. Even the once sad flower box has gotten a bright, colorful overhaul (see below). I asked the owner who did the work. All he could remember was, “Some guy I found in Alabama.” Well done, Alabama guy. (If anyone knows more, leave a comment.)
Located at 1401 Fatherland Street, at the corner with 14th Avenue. There is plenty of parking at 4 Way, so grab some sundries and enjoy the art!
