GR Grand Architectural Snippets

Dorothy Dorney's avatar Dorothy Dorney

The unique architectural elements found on both historic and older buildings in downtown Grand Rapids inspired this photo collage collective, GR Grand Architectural Snippets. One can surmise the passage of time based on buildings decorative elements, moldings, reliefs, windows, cornices, pillars, which are crafted on into each building. The city buildings become an outdoor Grand Architectural Gallery Museum. As pedestrians, we bustle about in the city perhaps without realizing that a Grand Architectural Gallery surrounds us everyday. A City Gallery with a wide range of aesthetics to gaze and contemplate on. In viewing the city buildings one can surmise “Snippets” of information about the extraordinary craftsmanship and architectural features of an era gone by. The intent is to bring the viewers attention to the buildings craftsmanship, aesthetics, and decorative details.
