Arcadia, FL 34266
Title of the art: “Arcadia”
Artists: Constance Ortmayer
There comes a time when you are totally overwhelmed with material that you tend to forget where you left off. Our visit to Arcadia is one example.
My wife and I took our son to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Florida this year. I used one image of the Arcadia building to update my twitter profile but somehow forgot to actually create the article with the rest of the images.
The building has a great lobby with this nice looking built-in display case. Inside are some great examples of USPS artifacts. I took the pictures through the glass so the images below have a glare to them, but you get the idea. I think my favorite artifact is the bear wearing a uniform. I like the belt and pin he is wearing.
I had a difficult time photographing the plaster cast, but eventually turned on the flash and was able to get some better photos. If anyone has any better ideas how to get better pictures that are not so yellow I’d love to hear your feedback.
What do you make of this building, the art and artifacts? I really like the idea of the display cases and how they have saved and preserved these artifacts. Please comment and share below.
Thanks for stopping by
