The works of Michael Schoenewies

Show announcement – Dreams of the Tire Factory

I’m working on finalizing everything for my upcoming show, here is the official announcement for it:

—————————————————————————————-
Dreams of the Tire Factory: Photographs by Michael Schoenewies and reclaimed painted items by Peat “Eyez” Wollaeger
September 6 – October 12, 2012
FREE public opening reception on Thursday, September 6, from 6-8 pm

Dreams of the Tire Factory: Photographs by Michael Schoenewies and works by Peat “Eyez” Wollaeger is an exhibition at the Schmidt Art Center in Belleville, IL. Peat was invited to paint the Tire Factory for a fundraising event before it was torn down in November 2011 for a planned expansion of the City Academy. Peat, and his small team of street/graffiti artists painted the building inside. Around the same time he met Michael Schoenewies through the brand new social photo network Instagram and invited him (Atomicplaypoy) to document the process.

The show features photographs by Michael Schoenewies as well as a few of the remaining pieces from the Tire Factory that were painted by Peat. The show is a look back at the Tire Factory before it became another building that’s been demolished in St. Louis.

There will be two concurrent shows by Khara Koffel and Neil Jussila.
