Meeting About the Possible Demolition of 1055 Elmira Street

The Mobile Architectural Review Board will address a petition to demolish the same property that is under application for rezoning ... 1055 Elmira Street.

The presence of concerned citizens at the ARB meeting is important.

The historic integrity of our city is important.

Let's protect it together.

FINALLY...  on Wednesday's agenda is a house just across the street, applying to keep windows previously installed without approval. While this may seem minor, the community must work to uphold the policies of the MHDC! Take a break on Wednesday afternoon to come over to Government Plaza and show your support!

THE MOBILE DELTA: Glass & Light

Rene Culler’s site-specific work is a mural in glass that celebrates the species-rich Delta and its atmospheric qualities. The Delta is a changeling environment which is constantly shaped and molded by the weather and waterways. As the grasses, almost transparent, catch the light, Culler’s drawings and painting in glass suggest the landscape that southern Alabama holds so dear. The composition is a wall of natural light utilized as a glass canvas for drawing, painting and printing with vitreous enamels. Slumped dimensional panels and blown glass abstractly portray the location’s dimensionality.
