Watch George Sanchez-Calderon's Levittown Go Up In Smoke

New, 3 comments

Artist George Sanchez-Calderon isn't much of a suburban guy. In fact, he just torched a sculpture of a ticky-tack Levittown suburban house that he built for Bal Harbour's Unscripted public art program entitled, duh, Levittown House. It was a temporary installation all along in Bal Harbour, and with his time up Mr. Sanchez-Calderon took the house to Bicentennial Park and lit it up. Watch the house, which made references to the socially restrictive but economically prosperous postwar suburban era in which Bal Harbour was planned and was placed in Bal Harbour's Founder's Circle, burn in one minute and fifteen seconds.
