Seen Around Town

As Nancy and I were taking our walk we saw some very cool graffiti on the side of Bentino's Pizza on Xenia Ave next to the bike trail. I believe the artist is called Logo?

While the Yellow Springs Arts Council does not support or promote art activities that might be regarded as illegal, we do support highlighting art in all its forms seen within Yellow Springs.

Pierre Nagely


I saw this fabulous painting at Emporium/Underdog Cafe,which is currently exhibiting the work of Pierre Nagely. So while you enjoy your cup of coffee or a bowl of their wonderful soup, have fun exploring the artwork. To contact the artist with any questions etc, just call the Cafe for his number.
