Walker Exhibition

At the Walker exhibition, right away I realized this was an exhibition where the artists could express their personal opinions on urbanization. I chose a piece by Chris Ballantyne. The reason I chose this piece was because it was constructed on a piece of wood. He was taking the side of urbanization as a bad thing. It was a picture of a group of trees surrounded by a parking lot. To me, it showed the effects of urbanization on the forests and lands. Many things are starting to be eliminated due to businesses being built. Urbanization is something in which everyone has their own opinion. It has been a very harmful thing to our economy.
