Large frogs populated an abandoned swimming pool in the middle of the Art Awareness grounds in Lexington. In the lush valley, new weather moved swiftly between us and distant cows. Fifty artists of diverse disciplines produced an urban energy. Everyone seemed compelled to contemplate the decay of the pool. We were grateful that the town dammed the summer river to provide an exceptional swimming place.
