It's In Conjunction With The Amarillo Arts Project
By now we should all be familiar with the Amarillo Arts Project. The Amarillo Arts Project has already seen works celebrating the history and story of the El Barrio and North Heights neighborhoods.
The Amarillo Arts Project Art Show is happening this week. You can get more info here.
Amarillo Early Days And Route 66
Some of the unique aspects of this project is the fact that the San Jacinto Arts Project will include areas that go back to when Amarillo was still just getting started. The Mother Road, Route 66, will also play a major role in the project.
Exploring History Through Art...
...is exactly how the project is described on the City of Amarillo's website. Honestly, it's a great way to tell the story of Amarillo in our historic neighborhoods. There is an awesome map you can check out that lists and goes into the history behind several well known locations.
Sites on the list include Ranchotel, The Nat, GoldenLight Cafe; just to name a few.
