30 Years / 30 Blocks

This site specific installation and publication 30 Years / 30 Blocks is a retrospective installation of place and public artworks at The Front gallery in the St. Claude Arts District. This exhibition and the accompanying book  form a scrapbook-like album that simultaneously chronicles Jan Gilbert’s three decades of public art and amalgamates these works with the  physical presence of The Front at the moment just before the installation in June, 2012.

“A rich New Orleans book, a moving commemoration in actual physical work in bodies, memories, buildings…beautiful.”
Andrei Codrescu
