  9. very difficult to comment on this findi g..parts of it looks like a junk yard…the other part looks like an angry display of some expression relating to police /violence among the black community….how one sees it as art is in the viewers'eyes…. some one definitely poured out a message​ and displayed symbolic feelings thru the displays… sorry to say,,CB,but you should be careful in these types of sites/areas for obvious reasons… kudos my brave carpet bagger!👌✊

  11. amazing how ill educated ppl are when it comes to folk art and art in general. If you aren't an artist perhaps you shouldn't even comment like you know what art is and the meaning of it. Art is for everyone and every artist knows that anything can be art and can be beautiful. Art isn't just to give you peace or just to be the ideal idea of beauty; no. Art can be cruel, gritty and reality filled as well. Its supposed to make you think, not just comfort or give you peace. The ppl talking trash about this art installation clearly do not know what the concept of art is, do not understand history, do not understand the history of oppression, feel like this piece is talking about all whites (even though it isn't), and/or are racist assholes. Ppl need to quit being so ethnocentric. It's annoying and damaging to society.

  12. Identical the block of houses that were turned into an art installation (all by many black detroiters) that we have in Detroit off of Mound Rd. Unfortunately someone put one of the houses on fire, the most famous one with all the stuff animals attached to the outside if it. Its extremely sad coz that installation was in memory of a little girl that passed away (or so what is said it's for).

  16. Sometimes, less is more. You were filming like you were in a hurry to document everything and get out of there before you were "caught". Would have liked to know the history of the place and about the "artist". I am left with more questions than answers after veiwing this.

  17. awesome

  18. "crushing social commentary"
    I agree! The installment also looks disturbing, hard to understand and uneasy. All of which the artist probably felt on a daily basis during the time period this art is based on.
    I'm in Birmingham, I'll visit this place next weekend. I can't believe I never heard of it. Thanks!

  25. My Mom was a folk artist for many years. She used to paint scenes similar to this and it was pretty eerie. She would also paint a day in the life of what she thought happened back then. The woman got so caught up in her work, it'd bring her to tears. Seeing this place was like she painted a tour – it was like a photograph almost. It's weird how I grew up the way did and still get accused of being racist. Not to mention having ancestry and blood-related family members of color. I'm sad, but it wasn't me who suffered torture because of my skin color. It was me who suffered because of my weight, my mentality, my intelligence, my sexuality, and my religion.

  26. Time for a refresher course on the civil rights movement, Bloody Sunday, Selma to Montgomery march peaceful until they hit the Edmund Pettus Bridge and all H broke loose. AL troopers attacked MLK and peaceful marchers with dogs, tear gas, billy clubs. Here I thought everyone who had every lived through the times or watched "Eyes on The Prize" would have been aware of Bloody Sunday.

  32. I wonder how each of those things ties together in the creators ind. Dolls, scripture, tagging, bowling balls, an alligator and gas can? Kind of looked as though there was a few different things going on but I guess only the person who did it knows.

  33. Just my opinion but this comes across as a pretty racist display, starting with the Ferguson reference.

    Reply
  34. Does not look African to me. I guess I was expecting something a bit different.

  35. I would not want to see the inside of this artist's mind.

  36. Hey, you're in my state!

    If you are ever in Prattville Alabama, you should find The House of Crosses.
    I've been there a few times.. I dunno if they're still up either, but it's a neat/kind of eerie place.

    It's just a house near the road where a man put up a bunch crosses and all kind of religious things up in his yard.
    I forgot the story behind it but it's interesting and I think it would be a place you'd be into.

  44. Powerful imagery and message. I wonder who the artist is? Also I really wanted you to linger or go WAYYyyyyy Slower on some parts. You could see the bus shell and Rosa Parks sign but you zoomed by it. This is the first time I have to say I wish you went slower and held the camera more steady.
