Place: STEVENS SQUARE CENTER FOR THE ARTS
Event: Benign Neglect Exploring the Urban Landscape
When: JULY 18, 09 | 6:30 - 10:00 pm
Info: Five years ago, the SSCA presented an exhibition called 'The Next American City', a showcase for architects and urban planners with an interest in land use, affordable housing, and alternative modes of transportation. But that was before Hurricane Katrina and the I35-W bridge collapse. That was before the nationwide housing crisis. Before the governor's 'unallotment' and cuts to Local Government Aid. Today, the future of American cities look a lot less promising, as cities struggle to get by in an era of declining revenues and decaying infrastructure.
'Benign Neglect' presents a snapshot of the urban environment as it currently exists, a refracted image of the utopian visions of 'The Next American City'.
Artists Mark Murrmann, Matthew J. Olson, Chris Faust, Jennifer Kotting, David Holmes, Eric Bendickson, Abigail Slawik and Julia Wilkins
