Sometimes the Building Itself is Just As Interesting As What’s Inside

Often times when you visit a museum, you are looking at the objects of historical, scientific, artistic or cultural significance on the inside of the building, but the BUILDING ITSELF is often very eye-catching, interesting and artistic as well! The same can hold true for your local amphitheater. Yes, you are there to focus on the band or production occurring under the amphitheater’s structure, but take a moment to also appreciate the structure itself.
