The Corner I chose is 6th St SE and 2nd Ave. SE.
I chose this corner for its diversity of buildings and its historic appearance. There is an apartment building, a printing press, the restaurant, Brasa, and the Telephone Building which houses various companies including an art and design grad school. I wanted to research this corner's history starting with the 'Telephone Building'
I contacted the occupants of the various buildings and soon found out how very little they knew about the history of this corner. They were very curious however and were interested in hearing about any history I learned during this process. Because of the general sense of excitement I received in response I decided I wanted to visually capture the corner's history and display it for the neighbors to see. Here is something I found on nc artblog. I wanted to do something similar to this idea.
Here is a close up.
