Architecture tourists go to events just so we can see the buildings. On November 11 it was the Lucky Penny Spectacular at the old Grant Park School, which is now repurposed and home to The Arts Exchange.
It was an evening of art, dance, and good cheer at an old school you've never seen. When you give artists, musicians, and dancers half a chance, they'll make some magic.
They'll take this workaday school doorway...
and make some magic with it...
...and draw a crowd by turning it into a dance stage.
The school's auditorium / gym is now the Paul Robeson Theater.
Lucky Penny really knows how to throw a dance whether on a sidewalk, in a doorway or theater.
Thanks to the Between Naps on the Porch Metamorphosis Monday.
