Flower & Ice: On The Spot and Online Exhibit
The 2011 HPNA exhibit includes a now and then retrospective on the destructive 1991 Rochester Ice Storm. To add perspective to the dramatic photos, we created shot for shot remakes of some of the photos of the neighborhood and displaying these alongside the 1991 images
We had so much fun walking the neighborhood and setting up retakes that we came up with an idea for how our neighbors could join us. The summer of 2011, we are hosting two “Picture the Neighborhood” days when everyone and anyone is invited to take pictures of The Highland Park Neighborhood…whether it is a photo of a street, the people, pets, businesses, your house, that beautiful garden down the way or our parks (large and small).
During these two days, we are setting up “Flower & Ice: On the Spot”. At ten locations, we will display a photo taken in 1991 (a map for this exhibit will be available – come to Ellwanger & Barry Park to get a copy or stop back here in a few days). When you tour this unique on-site display, we’d like to see your version of any of these scenes today. So, if you take photos at four of our stations and send them to us, you will be eligible for a prize. And all photos sent to us taken during “Picture the Neighborhood Days” (or any other time for that matter) will be eligible to be part of our upcoming 2012 printed calendar as well as a custom prize
A gallery of the 10 Flower & Ice: On the Spot Pictures along with other shots in the series is below. Interspersed with most of the 1991 photos is another, more recent 20 years after, photo:
