Keeping an icon shining bright...
Did you know that Piedmont Arts was originally a red brick building bearing little resemblance to the museum we know today? Painted white during a remodel in the 1930s, this Starling Avenue icon recently received a fresh coat of paint, new wrought-iron railings and repairs to its porch and foundation as part of the Growth + Restoration Campaign.
The original facade of the house (built c. 1900) in a photo from a 1982 article in the Martinsville Bulletin can be seen at left, compared to the facade of Piedmont Arts today seen above.
