Tragic Art

“The Vacancy Project” a series of light and sound installations throughout the vacant Central National Bank (circa 1929) was tragic on so many levels that it wouldn’t be constructive to vent on. Although I feel most conceptual art is BS, besides Joseph Beuys and select few others, these students should be commended for this piece. Hopefully it will enlighten the community!

    My dad’s first job in Richmond was working@ the Central National Bank….

    We moved from Madison,NJ and he left a job @ 1 Wall St. to move in Jan. 1966.

    My parents said dad would work at the tallest building in Richmond…
