The Tiniest Gallery
I like art, so I built a single-serving art gallery that features local artists and hung it on the fence outside my house.

It has a dusk timer and rope light so it lights up for about four hours after sundown. I feature work by local artists, ranging in age (so far) from 6 to 76. It runs on a two-week cycle, with art changes every second Sunday.
Role: Creator, curator

Here in Portland, we have poetry boxes sort of like this. The ones I'm familiar with have an abandoned look, their poetry rumpled with water damage. I stop to read them anyway.

Yours looks AMAZING! It looks like an actual art gallery! And with regularly-updated work! And a timer light!

Hey, you might like to reach out to the wonderful people of the miniscule "M┬Áseum" in Somerville, MA. It's really well done.

Thanks, everyone! Updated today on my two-week rota with "Sasquatch" by local watercolour painter Melodie Papp.

This reminds me of the little tiny Shinto shrines you find in Japan, just on street corners and such.

Another update (a day early due to life stuff); "Nope!" by pop artist Chesty Wilson.
