The Street Matchbox:1964 by Romare Bearden 1911-1988

Art Institute of Chicago: "The Street” is from Romare Bearden’s early “Projections” series, which documents the artist’s childhood in North Carolina and his migration to Harlem. These works began as small collages made with newspaper and magazine clippings, photographs, and paint, which were then enlarged using the Photostat copy process—which allowed Bearden to create large–scale reproductions on gelatin silver paper. Speaking later of the series, Bearden said, “What I’ve attempted to do is establish a world through art in which the validity of my Negro experience could live and make its own logic… . The medium I used was chosen intentionally because assemblage forges a variety of contrary images into one unified expression.

OMG 😱 it's an explosion of culture, history and scents in there. I could still smell the lovely scent in my jacket when I left... like 2 blocks down and it's welcoming aroma still lingered. Wow! They've got so much stuff in such a tiny place and it's all strategically & perfectly organized. It gave off all kinds of future customer vibes in my mind. I'm in love with the prospective designs and I see visual potential in damn near everything in the store to own space in my next apartment. I love this store!
