Rust Belt

Two orange buildings on snow-covered ground on either side of an unplowed road. 
Single orange building on snow-covered ground with a large tree on the viewer's right. 
A collage drawing with "When was the future?" in the middle of the object. The words are cut out of pictures of trees and a city's skyline. The background of the collage is the view of of a tall building and a cutout of a youth doing a handstand is placed on the balcony.  A picture of a tree is included by the person.
Cityscape showing downtown Detroit against a reddish orange sky in 1947. Along the bottom edge of the painting, people wait to load a bus and several vehicles drive on a street perpendicular to them. Multiple buildings several stories tall line the background of the painting.
A small urban house is seen in a nocturnal view set in winter.  The house is covered with icicles hang from the gables and over the first floor windows and door.  There is no illumination from inside the house, although there are lights in adjacet houses; the house is illuminated by a cool white light that, along with the house, illuminates the chain-link fence to the right and the trees flanking the house.
A mixed media assemblage consisting of welding goggles, rusted metal, a padlock, and two rusted bells hanging from a chain mounted on a wooden board with screws. The position of the objects, with goggles at the top, makes the assemblage look vaguely face-like.
