The first part of October was spent preparing for the the Donora Smog Commemoration. After disassembling shopping aisles and painting the walls, we turned the Central Drug Store into a makeshift gallery.
I did some word paintings that ended up as either enticing examples of the work inside or prominent window decoration.
Ross did a few pieces with cloth and Iron Oxide. He's also pretty much responsible for the legitimacy of the Smog Commemoration's advertising campaign. His smoke-stack logo is on banners that line the streets in Donora, and is also seen on the sign of the Donora Smog Museum. The Museum is located across the street from the gallery space we hooked up. Whereas our space was an old drugstore, the Smog Museum was formerly occupied by a Chinese Restaurant.
