Art About Town: Bob & Julia Christian Open House at 32MLK

“OPEN HOUSE COME IN” said the sign on the door. Being a rather mischievous person and prone to following instructions on signs, I did. The black lettered, white sign hung on a black door framed by a white wall and opened into a treasure trove of artwork, furniture, murals, and more.
