|DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER .... at least in human years|
BILL HART : DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
|Bill Hart's mural is monitored 24/7 by security cameras|
Bill's artwork always had a sense of timelessness about it: he would mold the shapes of his sculptures not with precision, instead, he welcomed imperfections. He would allow scrapes and jagged edges which would represent the weathered appeal of objects over space and time. It is for this reason that Bill's artwork, and I refer to this one in particular, stands proud and undarnished from the past 37 years.

Hanns once told me a funny antidote about this mural:
a BIG THANKS to Hanns and the people of HOH who allowed me
to touch some REAL diamonds and spend time with Bill's mural.
