    Many of you may have walked or driven nearby the old Kirksville Arts

    Building that was burned in the Dec 2, 2016 Fire.

    Here are some pictures you may have taken yourself, of the hull of the

    building left after the Inferno.

    But, very few have been inside the building to see the devastation that

    engulfed Kirksville Arts Gallery.

    Above, the brightest area, where the daylight is coming in is the

    South East Corner of the building.

    Oh, dear, that Gorgeous Piano. It makes sound, but it isn’t pretty.

    They tape plastic everywhere and begin to scrape up the old tile floor.

    I will keep you posted on this process as the Phoenix arises from the ashes.
