Have a barren wall in need of York County, Pa., art?

Linked in/Neat stuff: Remember Melvin’s/New courthouse bell
‘Have a barren wall in need of art?’ The story about an event ‘Local Lens at CityArt’ poses that question. Large, canvass-wrapped photos of York County scenes, courtesy of York Daily Record/Sunday News and Evening Sun in Hanover photographers will be on display on June 6, 2014 at First Friday in York. Proceeds will go to Olivia’s House, a grief center for children. This is one of the photos. (See second photo below). See the entire photo lineup at Local Lens. This 2010 photo shows some fishing fun in Lake Marburg waters under the bridge at Codorus State Park. So, the question again: Have a barren wall in need of York County, Pa., art? Also of interest: Check out this art exhibit from First Fridays past.
