  1. What a great asset for Huntsville to have David Adickes return to his roots and gift the city with a showcase museum of his lifetime of paintings and sculptures. I very much appreciate that he is ‘recycling’ an unused building in the community and bringing life back to Huntsville’s old high school. Thank you, David Adickes, and all those members working with the Adickes Foundation.

  2. Just wanted to let you know that at the old Huntsville High School, that one of the face sculptures out in front of the building has been blown over.

  3. This is a great idea.
    The school is sentimental to me as my mother, Marjorie
    Young and my uncle, Nolan Young graduated from this
    school.

  4. I AM VERY INTRESTED IN POSSIBLY TRANSFORMING THIS BUILDING INTO A HOUSE TO HELP YOUNG MOTHERS. TEEN MOTHERS. WILL YOU PLEASE CONTACT ME AT THE EMAIL NOTED ABOVE? THANK YOU
