Rust Belt: Beautiful Photo Exhibit of Decaying Buildings | SOMA

Submitted by the Event Organizer
In a 2008 exhibit in S.F., photographer Katherine Westerhout featured large-scale pictures of a smattering of Detroit’s famed abandoned buildings — an aquarium, a boat club, a few theaters. It was strong stuff, freighted with meaning; the buildings were beautiful in their last days, old stars slowly falling apart, with little chance for recovery.
For “Rust Belt,” a new exhibit at Electric Works which opens on January 16th, she adds Buffalo and Philadelphia to the mix, which have no shortage of blasted structures — grain elevators, Eastern State Penitentiary — ready for one last close up.
Opening Reception January 16, 2010 at 6pm
