Art for the Week – Society In Decline

soc_dec4This collection is an old favorite of mine. The Society In Decline Project is a catalogue of those old signs you see on the road. Built in the early part of the century, they have long ago lived out the most useful part of their lives and are a testament to the decay of small parts of our country.

  1. These are great. When I lived in Artesia, there was a doughnut shop with a gigantic donut as a sign. You could see it from really far away and I always thought it was so cool. I could never get my dad to stop and buy me a donut there, though, and this was extremely upsetting.
