21 Flag 2013


Daily Flag 21 on Saturday, December 21 at 80 Leuty by Ron Mitchell & Virginia Mantycki. 27” x 47” Digital image compilation printed on outdoor vinyl banner material. SOLD $175 Daily Flag 21 depicts iconic images of The Beach in winter: a cool winter sky, the deep blue lake, snow-covered beach and the Leuty lifeguard station (with the playful addition of a street number, #21 naturally). A tennis ball sits atop the station, much like a shining star atop a Christmas tree and the Turneresque sky creates a beautiful halo effect. If you live here, chances are you’ve seen all the happy dogs that romp on the beach. And like all well-behaved Beach dogs, they are enjoying their freedom behind the winter storm fences! May today’s flag be a reminder that, sadly, there are many people in our city who are not as fortunate and well cared for as our family pets: people who do not have a warm, comfortable place to sleep and who do not know where their next meal will come from. Daily Bread Food Bank helps people, many of them families, through difficult times, so please be generous in your support. Now, take the dog to the beach and throw the ball!
