Art Barn Dismantled

All good things must come to an end and on May 9, the Englewood Art Barn on the corner of West Langsner Street and South McCall Road was dismantled with one final gesture of goodwill for the community. Self-designated curator Larry Ross held a silent auction to sell off the 275 pieces of artwork mounted on the barn, created by both adults and children alike, to raise money for the Englewood Community Care Clinic. The auction was successful, like the artwork project itself, and raised over $1,300 through the sale of 50 pieces of art. The money was presented to Englewood Community Care Clinic Manager Beth Harrison on May 12. The Art Barn was the brainchild of the curator, Englewood resident Larry Ross, who wanted to produce a creative expression of hope during the COVID-19 pandemic and obtained the support of Ben Mitchell of Merry Mechanization, who owns the unused barn that is slated for future destruction. Larry requested the Englewood community to participate in covering the barn with their own creative artwork and the response was overwhelming. Besides the delight of kids and adults seeing their works displayed on the outside of the barn, it brightened the day for people driving and walking by, many pulling over to examine and feel uplifted by the messages of hope posted. Thank you, Larry and Ben, for providing a rainbow of color and hope during the COVID-19 situation! If you would like to reclaim your artwork if it was not sold, please contact Ben Mitchell at 475•1788. Photo: (l-r) Using his social distancing ruler, Larry Ross passes the donation to Beth Harrison. Ben Mitchell is on the right.
