There's nothing in there. The only possible point of interest is that the building is an old (1900s) public school. If you went to a large, urban public school built in the 1900s, this building is identical, which is interesting in itself.

An interesting collection of modern art located inside a historic old school that was built in the very late 1800's. While wandering through the main hall on the first floor Tracy Houck (the executive director) mistook me for someone she was meeting but then graciously...More
