America Street, House of the Future
corners of America and Reid Streets
Artist: David Hammons

About this project: The artist selected a poor east side neighborhood to create a two-part work. He replaced a billboard image which promoted cigarettes and featured blacks, with his photograph of local children looking forward and upward toward a flag at the end of the park. He also constructed, with neighborhood help, a Charleston house that is smaller than normal scale. It represents, among other things, pride in the area’s old homes and in the past.
