Julia Christensen will be unveiling her Big Box Reuse exhibition tonight at The Green Building on East Market Street beginning at 5:00 p.m. at the First Friday Gallery Hop. She has travelled 75,000 miles documenting big-box conversions for her book and her photography. The show runs through January 30th.
Here’s some info about the show:
In her book Big Box Reuse, and accompanying photographic exhibition, Julia Christensen takes us on a road trip across America to look at what becomes of the spaces superstores leave behind when they move out. These warehouse-like buildings have found their place in the built landscape since the first Wal-Mart, Kmart and Target stores opened in 1962.
