I'm in Vicksburg, Mississippi and my favorite place to hang out and get ideas is The Attic Gallery.

It's a great mix of fine art and folk art; Traditional and found materals.
Share your favorite local art and crafty inspirations!

Urban Outfitters! There's one in downtown Lawrence, Kansas that I love to visit and check out all the stuff to see if I can make it for cheaper.

when i lived in hampton roads, va area it was a man 68 year old man called johnson who painted his whole house inside.....walls, stairs etc etc. the city made him move and part of it is in a musuem some parts he took to his new house on 28th street, u can see some stuff oh his porch.

in chicago it was the famous folk artist mr i aka mr imagination that uses bottle caps to make chairs, a real coat, and limestone objects......, i use to love to look at his house, thru the windows when the train went by.

here in dc/va it's many things, from the muralists, to the person who carved half a tree on one residential street near hu. etc etc

Here in Detroit, we have too many amazing things to list, my personal highlights include the semi-famous Heidelberg Project (http://www.heidelberg.org), all the amazing paintings and performances at the Detroit Institute of Arts Late Fridays (http://www.dia.org), The basement of Old Main where all the artist labs are, the incomprable music of Detroit, and the beautiful buildings all around (http://detroityes.com - take the tour!). Come to Detroit, but get a local to show you around! Although, that goes for every city I can think of...

Born and raised.
As a matter of fact, I'm still here.(sigh)
But, most of the time, my mind is somewhere else.

I like the shops on Olvera St in Los Angeles that sell Dia de los Muertos dolls, Catholic kitch, etc.

They use alot of glitter.
