~ Brother Mel
Being the first day of the month, today is THEME DAY in the City Daily Photo world. Since this month's theme is METAL, I thought it appropriate to post these huge metal guitars for Music City!
On display at The Arts Company in downtown Nashville, these two guitars are the work of Brother Mel, a brother in the Society of Marianists for more than 50 years. Brother Mel started out teaching years ago, but the Society decided that his true calling was art, and they gave him carte blanche to create. . . and create he has! He works in watercolor and metal as well as other mediums. His work is featured in hospitals and parks in St. Louis, at the headquarters of Monsanto and Adam's Mark Hotels, and at the St. Louis International Airport. The Arts Company has a number of his pieces, and you can see some of his work by clicking here. You can also see a catalog celebrating his 80th birthday by clicking here.
Theme days are fun days for us as we all interpret the theme differently.
