Preference for Porches and Patina in the (Grant ) Park

"The Future Is Behind Us - Opening Reception" by WonderRoot at the L.P. Grant Mansion hosted by Atlanta Preservation Center for Phoenix Flies 2012. This post is just a tease.

I love the L.P. Grant Mansion. Even the back porch has patina. People want to be there.

The front porch last night at dusk. The high ceiling makes me feel important, not small.

This place make people smile. This is the first art/photography show in the Grant Mansion drawing room.

You should peek in.
