The Art Institute has been running an exhibit titled “The City Lost and Found” since October, and this weekend will be your last chance to view it before it closes.
The American city of the 1960s and 1970s experienced seismic physical changes and social transformations, from urban decay and political protests to massive highways that threatened vibrant neighborhoods. Nowhere was this sense of crisis more evident than in the country’s three largest cities: New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles .
During this time “new forms of photography offered the public a complex image of urban life and experience while also allowing architects, planners, and journalists to imagine and propose new futures for American cities.”
Being born in ’83 I’m so fascinated by the political changes that swept through the nation before I was born. I hope this exhibit doesn’t disappoint by being watered down. Click here to read more about this cool exhibit!
