…and to think that I saw it on Doubleday Street

June 26, 2011

My YouTube video of the outdoor art exhibit entitled “…and to think that I saw it on Doubleday Street”:


From Binghamton Bridge:

An exploration of the changing complexion of Doubleday Street since the 1950s & 1960s is presented in graphic form through an outdoor installation of paintings by current resident and artist Judy Salton. To see a short video of the installation follow this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAKV9ZOLtJs

The earlier neighborhood is represented by large grisaille paintings up to 16 feet in length, based on black & white photographs from that time when the largely Irish Catholic neighborhood centered on St Paul’s Roman Catholic School & Church. The flavor of the street today as the neighborhood begins to coalesce is shown through various free-standing wooden cut-outs of full color life-size paintings inspired by today’s residents.

Paintings will be displayed at various locations on lawns and sidewalks. Take a stroll through this old neighborhood, wander among the current residents, take a look at what went before and hear stories old and new. Doubleday Street has been a neighborhood for most of its 150 years. Affluent in its infancy, blue-collar church and school centered by its centennial birthday, its greatest evolution took place after the 1960. The economic decline of the last 25+years has seen the area survive through its less inviting years.

UNDERSTAND THAT CHANGE IS INEVITABLE AND SHOULD NOT BE FEARED. IT MAY OPEN PATHS TO WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITIES. MOVE FORWARD WITH US AS WE CREATE A NEW NEIGHBORHOOD OF DIVERSE POSSIBILITIES.
