I have wanted to see Pennsylvania-based artist Brent Green’s film Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then since a friend of mine saw it during a Brooklyn rooftop film festival last summer. The film is based on the life of Leonard Wood, a Louisville hardware store clerk who began building onto his house to transform it into a “healing machine” for his sick wife.

Green learned about Wood’s amazing story when his house was condemned, but the multi-media artist rebuilt a new version of the house in his Pennsylvania backyard. Now, thanks to Art Without Walls and the Land of Tomorrow (LOT) gallery, the rebuilt house is on display through the end of the month at LOT Louisville (233 West Broadway).

  1. Wood’s house was the setting for Burn to Shine 4, a series of rock films made around the country in condemned buildings. B to S was shown by the Louisville Film Society last year as a fund-raiser for Louisville musician Jason Noble. The film is full of great music from some of Louisville’s best indie and punk bands. But Wood’s home is the real star.
