Back wall of Medford’s Sparta Building. 2014. The grand building was finished in 1911 with great fanfare and salubrious intentions. The building was the pride of the city and won national honors for design, a first for the city. The mayor called it his second home; it was filled with financial experts and those who craved their advice. Until greed and corruption crippled the financial world and those who sucked at its beguiling teat. Two suicides and a murder closed the doors. The building lay empty for decades. The decay on the walls hid the glory that was, until the artists were encouraged to fill the forlorn spaces with exhibits.
