Abstract:
Progress City is a full-scale art exhibition examining the way history can be visually represented through sculpture. Focusing specifically on the time period during which America transitioned from an industrial to a service-based economy, it examines the effects this departure had on cities throughout the Southeast. Comprised of a series of sculptural buildings juxtaposed alongside a collection of found objects, this project mixes different forms of media together to create a conceptual display for the viewer to enjoy. As you will see, the project has undergone many revisions and edits over the course of this process. The final product is nowhere close to the ideas I had initially proposed at the beginning. However, you will come to see that, although this project may have seen many changes, it still revolves around the same theme, and that’s progress. [Introduction]
