Best Place to Find Art Elements: Demolition sites around Winter Park

Best Place to Find Art Elements
This year, it’s the dumpsters of Winter Park, where the mass demolition of beautiful old houses has created an extravaganza of soulful junk to pick through. Anywhere there’s a residential builder’s sign, it usually means good pickings for fine architectural details on their way to the landfill. Best recent find: some exquisite carved oak desk drawers from an old built-in cabinet that was ripped out and discarded. Nothing like American craftsmanship to stimulate an artist’s imagination.
