Don’t miss your chance to see the largest photograph ever made. It measures 3 stories high by 11 stories long. The Great Picture was created by making a camera obscura out of an airplane hangar at the former El Toro Marine Base in Irvine, California. The image depicts the landscape of the Marine Base after is was abandoned, but before its transformation into the Orange County Great Park.
The Great Picture is on view at UCR Sweeney Art Gallery, in Riverside, California from July 16 – October 8, 2011. Opening reception is July 16th from 6 – 9 p.m. The Sweeney is located at 3834 Main Street, Riverside, CA 92501.
I had the experience of helping wash the chemicals off the Great Picture in June of 2010. To read a full account, and see photos of the process, visit my blog, Washing the Great Picture.
