If no one knows the exhibit is there because there is no social information given to newspapers or online sources, the value of the works cannot be realized. The concept from the Greenville Museum of Art is a solid one. Many times there are artists that live within a particular community but because of the peculiarities of that community, they may be of interest to a metropolitan city but not a
smaller suburban community that has it’s own flavor. With blank wall space abounding in many city government buildings it makes perfect sense to display local works and even give patrons the ability to purchase them.
What we have noticed in talking with some of the past artists we have associated with, is that Ikohaus is kind of an Avant-garde, outpost, sign post pointing the way and the direction. Not everyone may want to or be able to immediately follow the “signs” directions, but surely sooner or later most will find out that the sign post was correct, even if they take a circuitous route, they usually still end up on the same path that Ikohaus pointed to from the beginning.
