Red in the Place

South Main is painting the town — its part of it, at least — red.


In the coming weeks, the South Main Association will install 10 large red panels in a vacant lot across the Central Station.

"The site has some environmental issues," says Lorie Chapman, chair of the group's neighborhood improvement committee. "We hope to eventually have it developed, but until then, this is a neighborhood beautification project."

The panels, following the lead of Anthony Lee's "Modern Hieroglyphs" project on the Central Station wall, will be several shades of red.
