THEME: “The Romance of Urban Decay”
“The Romance of Urban Decay” is also the name of an upcoming Charles Burchfield exhibition that is scheduled for April22, 2009 – August 16th, 2009 at the new Burchfield Penny Museum. The RUNWAY 2.0 show will reflect the “The Romance of Urban Decay” for the spring 2009 BSC Runway show.
Some images in Burchfield’s work are of urban life in the depression years; romantic and/or fantastic interpretation of nature. Areas of inspiration are the streets, harbor [ex. decaying wooden grain elevators], railroad yards, the WNY countryside.
Architectural jewels such as the Richardson Complex and Buffalo City Hall as well as Olmstead parks can be used for design inspirations. Buffalo is one of only two cities that can boast of buildings designed by Wright, Sullivan and Richardson. Grab your camera or sketchbook and look around the WNY area for your inspirations or get started immediately by following the links below to get your creative juices flowing….
