We’re often asked where The Gallery got its name. The answer is simple: “The Gallery” seemed fitting because public art was part of the development approval process. But with no parameters of what public art should look like, our only vague conception in those early days of development was that it should represent something about Ann Arbor.
And in those early days, people began to express interest in the building, including Barbara Murphy and Gavin Eadie who has given me to permission to share this story. (Otherwise, we don’t divulge our buyer’s names.)
