|Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland 1861 - 2008|
"…the first major exhibition to use visual art as a lens to explore the lure that Coney Island exerted on American culture over a period of 150 years. An extraordinary array of artists viewed Coney Island as a microcosm of the American experience, from its beginnings as a watering hole for the wealthy, through its transformation into an entertainment mecca for the masses, to the closing of Astroland Amusement Park following decades of urban decline."
Work by Lisa Kereszi is included in the show Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland, 1861-2008 on view now at the Wadsworth Museum of Art in Hartford Connecticut through May 31st, 2015. This multimedia show chronicles the rise and fall of the "World's Greatest Playground" located on the shores of Brooklyn, New York. Kereszi's color photographs from the early 2000s document the final stages of the park's decay through her focused attention to often overlooked details. Read more.
