We were intrigued by this sculpture that was displayed at the Nordstrom's store in Santa Barbara. Local artist, Lenore T. Hughes created a special Valentine's art installation for Nordstrom in Santa Barbara.
Here was her comment, "As easy and efficient on-line is now-and its definitely a big part of the present and future in shopping--I like to continue the in-person, shopping tradition of getting dressed up and taking my grandchildren to Nordstrom...the only big department store in town, for the fun of it all, to experience all the sensory pleasures we just don't get ordering in front of the computer screen in our pj's'"
The unveiling event was announced in our local paper, Santa Barbara Free Press, both in print and on line. It brought people to the store at the grand unveiling last Saturday, and no doubt they were moved to shop. For the artist is was a wonderful accolade from Nordstrom's and added to the brand's image: likability caring, and great service for which they are known.
It made us happy that the store was featuring a local artist, and we felt for a moment that we may need to buy some heart shaped red glasses. And no, they were not selling those, nor that heart shaped sequined bag. Happy Wednesday.
