The works of UTC’s Dana Moody are the focus this week of a Pop-Up exhibit in the Association of Visual Artists gallery on the North Shore.
Moody, professor and graduate program director in the Department of Interior Architecture and Design, traveled to Havana, Cuba, last summer to document efforts to restore the city’s crumbling buildings and other architecture. Her photos from the trip have been turned in an exhibit titled “Havana: Behind the Façade.”
“My first day in the city I was extremely overwhelmed by it, thousands and thousands of buildings that are in full decay,” she recalled. “If a building collapses, they either prop it up and go live in it or they go rob it of all its materials, so they can fix what’s wrong in their own house.”
The exhibit runs through Saturday.
