Graffiti Hotel

Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward

Yesterday we all took off for Lansing to check out this old abandoned hotel that had been painted by several graffiti artists in the past week.
The purpose of the project is to bring positive attention to an area of town that is undergoing a revitalization.

During a turning point in our lives, my husband (then boyfriend) and I were returning to college after after a period of "living in the real world" and actually moved a couple of miles from this hotel. We even stayed here one night during our apartment hunt.

Having no idea this was the hotel that we had read about and were on our way to check out, we were quite surprised to see that it was indeed that same place!

This hotel along with the art work are scheduled to be torn down after this weekend.
