Mike Osborne (M.F.A. Studio Art, 2006) presents work in Monopoly at Holly Johnson Gallery. The exhibition will be on display October 11 through December 20. From the press release:

Monopoly revolves around the historical connection between the iconic board game and the Atlantic City street grid that served as its template. Catalyzed by "The Search for Marvin Gardens", a 1972 essay by John McPhee, Monopoly translates the board's Mondrian-like map into photographs that grapple with the city's complicated past and present. This gesture of converting abstractions-the purple rectangles known as Baltic and Mediterranean Avenues, for example-into carefully rendered representations of actual places is mildly absurd but also serious, an oblique means of reflecting on the problems that have plagued many American cities over the last half-century.
