Windham, Connecticut, Art Project Puts Style on the Grit of Life
Artist Jerry Montoya created this installation by painting Arm & Hammer laundry soap boxes with black-and-white images of urban life. Together, the boxes create a complex, close urban world. The work is a storybook rich in personality and character but also deep with despair. This is a hemmed-in world where the measure of a hero is his or her ability to push against limitations.
