Bridges: the Grand Basin (2014)

300.00

Colored thread hand embroidered directly into a recent black & white photograph of the Grand Basin in Forest Park (MO).

Bridges combines photography and hand embroidery. In this series, the thread acts as elements of spirit, life, and delight that aim to bridge the gap between two eras of Forest Park. 

Half of the photographs come from the Missouri History Museum’s collection of 1904 World's Fair/Olympics historical photographs, and the other half I took recently. Together, the images highlight changes in the Forest Park area that have occurred over time, and consistencies that make (and will continue to make) Forest Park such a wonderful and whimsical public space.

11" x 14" with a 1/2in white border.

Created in 2016 by Joyce McCown; photograph taken by Joyce in 2014.
