I’m incredibly disappointed to miss this, as I will be out of town. I hope some of you might find this meaningful enough to attend and pass along the knowledge that surely will be shared. The union of art history and disability studies, lovely. Click the image for more information.
Andrea Clark’s images are on display again at UNC-A. They were last exhibited at Pack Library. Here’s more information from that exhibition.
Asheville’s East End Circa 1968,” a historical photography exhibition by Asheville artist Andrea Clark, is on view through February 26 in UNC Asheville’s Blowers Gallery. The exhibition includes 26 framed black-and-white photographs and a large historical map of Asheville. A reception will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, in the gallery, with a talk by the artist at 5 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Thanks for posting this Ashevegas. More here.
More information on Urban Renewal:
From Encyclopedia.com: “ Arising from more than a half-century of slum clearance and urban housing reform campaigns, “Urban Renewal” was a federally sponsored and largely federally financed program that altered the physical landscapes of many American cities between the mid-1950s and the early 1970s. Proponents promised to provide cities with funds and legal powers to tear down slums, sell the land to private developers at reduced cost, relocate slum-dwellers in decent, safe housing, stimulate large-scale private construction of new housing, revitalize decaying urban downtowns by eliminating “blight” (economically unprofitable districts), and add new property-tax revenues to shrinking city budgets. Urban renewal, proponents argued, would also slow the departure of middle- and upper-income whites for the suburbs.”
