  16. 16. Aesthetics and Pedagogy  Key Ideas How individuals view the installations depends on there own experiences with Lucille Ball, whether they have enjoyed being entertained through her works? The works provide deep meaning and a sense of pride to the city of Jamestown, for producing individuals of historical significance.  Lines of Inquiry How long will the works last in terms of weathering ? How does there presence effect locals vs. tourist? What limitations were set for the artist? Have these works met the expectations of the financiers/commissioners of the projects? What other images were considered, but It was interesting to me that these instillations and future works are in the skilled hands or a retired educator. Gary Peters also participates in the Jamestown city arts council, attends downtown Jamestown Develop Corp. meetings and is a continuing advisee with the Gebby Foundation which is responsible for the funding of Jamestown’s Lucy murals. The murals bring attention to Jamestown’s history with Lucy and develop inquiry and investigation within the hearts and minds of admirers and onlookers. Historically Jamestown was a manufacturing hub and as it has many abandoned factory buildings some art on the walls really does go a long way toward creating beauty in the city.
  17. 17. Lucy’s childhood home in Celeron ( 59 Lucy Lane), Gary Peters painted this house. I'm happy that I have brought laughter because I have been shown by many the value of it in so many lives, in so many ways. Lucille Ball
