Let the Pipes Rust

Comment card written in response to an exhibit by artist Maxx Sizeler at 2426 Bradish Place on May 19, 2007.\r\n\r\nComplete text: \"We\'ve been continuously conditioned to believe that humanity dominates the habitat it terrains, but now we see the impact of the environment reclaiming the land that we\'ve materialized into our own. Let the pipes rust, the sidewalks moss and watch the vines cascade over gables. Peace and love, Kim.\"\r\n\r\n\"NEIGHBORHOODS: 2426 BRADISH PLACE\" was a multidisciplinary installation, the third in a series, that took place in the gutted ground floor of the home of Michelle Levine and Clay Thomas on May 19th, 2007. Michelle is an artist who is currently rebuilding her house and studio in the Tulane/Gravier neighborhood. Through the use of interviews with neighbors, soundscapes, live music, drawing, photography, and sculpture, this event confronted the range of issues the community is experiencing as they revitalize this neighborhood.\r\n
