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 from card: \"It was hot, very hot, very very hot. It stunk. It was depressing, very depressing. The house became my enemy. I was determined to [?] it, to pack up and move out to move on with my life. All the plants were dead and then I saw some bulbs starting to come up out of the ground and I could see nature reviving itself, coming to live and there was hope. Billy Sizeler\"\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
