Art illuminates life

Dave Schulz is a wonderful artist, whose work happens to be on display at the Russell Library in Middletown CT, this month.

But he's also a front-yard editorialist. His Burma Shave style, drive-by messages are always on target, and two-sided. Not that he discusses both sides of an issue, simply that both sides of his yard signs carry a message. This is the first time, as far as I know, that Schulz has used a visual only, no words, message for South bound drivers and pedestrians.

To see the work yourself, drive down Ridge south from Main Street Extension, and just as it passes Russell Street, you'll find the signs.

Here's what you'll see driving South.

And here's what you'll see driving North.
