SKU: MEMP Category:

Long Exposure Photograph of the old Gary Public Schools Memorial Auditorium, built in 1927 to honor local veterans who died in WWI. For 70 years it was used for events like graduations and music festivals (yes, the Jackson 5 did perform here!) Three years after being added to the National Register of Historic Places, the Great Gary Arson of 1997 destroyed nearly the entirety of the massive building which could house an audience of 5000. This lone brick section continued to stand strong for years despite the elements and the explorers. While now demolished, the land has been repurposed for affordable housing for the fine folks of Gary. This pink piano is currently home to the mice and centipedes we watched skitter across the top as we illuminated it with a green flashlight. The rest of the brick structure is lit with blue, red, and yellow from our Protomachines flashlight while running from corner to corner in the dark, trying not to fall into giant holes in the ground. All in a night’s work!
