Celebrating 15 years of Blue Dress Park. What used to be an overlooked slab of concrete has since developed into a symbol of overlooked cultural resources. On June 30th, 2000 Paul Druecke christened Blue Dress Park by inviting people to gather in the space. In doing so he temporarily changed perceptions about the urban environment. Now after 15 years in the making, the park serves as an emblem for the poetic potential of neighborhood amenities.
With this selection of photos we look back to where it began and thank everyone who has supported us along the way. Look for coming details on an event in late August.
