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.
