Red Carpet Treatment

Ruskin, Florida

The welcome mat was definitely rolled out. The Firehouse Cultural Center is brand-new, and their facility is still very much a work in progress, but their name recognition and community support, as well as their ability to generate local press coverage, were all impressive. Better than other arts organizations with much longer histories. During the many hours I spent walking in various places in and around Ruskin, making photographs, a number of times people stopped and asked if I was the guy taking pictures, that they'd read about in the paper...
