Kathleen Flanagan with Peggy Cameron: Parking the Common

In 1763, Halifax was granted 240 acres "for the use of the inhabitants of the town of Halifax as Common forever". This study by photographer Kathleen Flanagan and biologist Peggy Cameron examines the expanding use of the Common for parking lots and the resulting disappearance of green space. By comparing the parking lots to invading species that are gradually taking over the natural landscape, the exhibit raises questions about the outcome. Opening reception on Tues, Oct 7, 5-7pm.
