Vanishing Identities concentrates on the hand-painted signage that illustrates many of the historic downtown facades and investigates gentrification, displacement, by using hand-painted signage as a metaphor for the aging process and change. The works featured in the presentation were photographed by the artist within the last decade during his documentation of the city’s cultural landscape.
