Photo supplied by Hannon Library Tours Through the Lens Documenting Online Ashland Public Art By Daniel Alrick he City of Ashland provides on its website a virtual photo tour of 22 works of public art: murals, statues, sculptures, and paintings all in public space, viewed through an overhead map via satellite imagery and street level views captured by local photographer Graham Lewis. In moving away from tangible printed and distributed paper brochures the Ashland Chamber of Commerce and The Oregon Center for the Arts aim to translate their visitor guides and brochures into more cost-effective and flexible digital guides that can be viewed online or printed. By presenting the works in their geographic context, the online tour is well-suited toward visitors, while also emphasizing the community pride for the aesthetic value public artwork provides to Ashland residents. “Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real.” JULES VERNE, Around the World in 80 Days T Photos by Graham Lewis
