Michael Hower: Graffiti Scapes
August 16 @ 11:00 am - October 6 @ 4:00 pmFree
Michael Hower’s digital photographs are founded upon a fascination with abandoned buildings and landscapes. He photographs ghost towns and spaces consumed by graffiti such as Centralia, Pennsylvania. This ghost town sits atop a burning mine fire, and the main road leading into town is covered with colorful tags and philosophical tidbits for three quarters of a mile: the infamous ‘Graffiti Highway.’
Hower travels around the Mid-Atlantic to ghost towns, skate parks, train graveyards, city alleys and wherever else graffiti dominates the landscape. Included in the exhibition will be a new photographic installation, Concrete City, which was inspired by the Pennsylvania ghost town which was abandoned in 1924.
