We are very pleased to feature Jonathan Blaustein in the Center’s North Gallery from March 11 – April 30.

Photographer Jonathan Blaustein offers a novel representation of food in a drive-through culture ruled by big budget advertising and low concern for truth – food as it really is. Blaustein’s series The Value of a Dollar removes the glossy packaging and examines edible commodity available for one dollar – ten organic blueberries, seven packages of ramen noodles, forty-eight tea biscuits and a double cheeseburger just to list a few. To illustrate the impact of globalization, the subjects chosen for this project were explicitly sourced in Northern New Mexico, where Blaustein currently resides.

This exhibition is made possible thanks to the generous support of the City of Fort Collins Fort Fund Grant.
