Entering the El Moore

Front doorway


“This is the second image that I did, and it kind of captures another moment in time. It’s a front doorway, but it’s the most iconic part of it. You’re seeing the El Moore sign in it, but at the same time you’re seeing how rough the stairway to it is, the overgrown brush that’s around it, and even a little detail – I’m not sure if it’s graffiti or whatever – that’s on the doors. And then peeking inside a little bit, because the door was propped open.”

Kevin Gardner,  from K Creative, a Green Garage business-in-residence is the resident sketch artist for the El Moore.
