Photo: Indigo Blues For Hub City Light Bulb Art Spartanburg

My city has these light bulb arts all over the city. This one is called Indigo Blues For Hub City by Pat Kabore. She based the art from what I hear on the history of indigo in South Carolina, the crop was used to dye clothing and it was pretty big at that time period. On a visual level, this is one of my least favorite in the city, so far. Just not visually stunning (very subtle) and kind of forgettable.

As a spinner and dyer of wool, I found indigo a fabulous and fascinating color. It was difficult to control, but the results breathtaking. I eventually became allergic to the plant and had to quit tinkering with it.

I do like the color, but you are right. This one is a bit bland.

I remember reading about the indigo crop in the history textbooks when I was in 6th grade eons ago. Going crops for the blue dye fascinated me.

Indigo blue is a fabulous color! I do like the blues on this bulb, even though it looks like a tattered billboard.
