Auburn has some terrific public art and today I braved the cold rain to capture two of the best. The delightful piece is called “Gear Ball” and it is by Jenny Ellsworth. It is made of truck parts and is part of the Auburn Downtown Sculpture Gallery.
Greg Bartol and Deborah Drllevich’s Silverware Ostrich earned the People’s Choice award in 2015. It is a great piece from a car drive by, but I’m so glad I got out of the car to really take a look at it. It is made out of silverware!
More about art in Auburn can be found here. I plan to go back when the weather turn nice (hopefully soon!) and see all the other pieces!
Naked Pizza at 417 Ramsey Way (Kent Station), was a takeout stop for me after my dentist appointment today. It is part of a small chain that has 7 US locations (this one, 4 in Virgina, one in New Jersey and one in New Orleans, LA) and one location in Kenya. I really enjoyed the mason jar lighting system over the largest table in the restaurant. When I finally got home almost an hour later (I5 traffic is crazy!) the pizza had to be reheated, but it was very good. Their website tells me that the pizza is made with an abundance of good stuff.
Kent Station reminds me of the shopping in Dallas. It is full of upper end stores and a perfectly maintained, self contained arranged like a small village. My place of the day was Christopher and Banks, woman’s clothing store. They were offering 40% off everything in the store and I also had a $10 off coupon. Seemed like a good time to go!
