Aesthetics of Abandonment: The Dixie Square Project

ByChristopher W. Luhar-Trice

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Dixie Square Mall opened in 1966…closed in 1979…and remains standing today. The local shopping mall — not too far from home — a place to shop, eat, work, and socialize. For the people of Harvey, Illinois Dixie Square Mall was this and more. Since it’s closing in 1979, Dixie Square has become something else: a crumbling eyesore and a haven for crime and gang activity. Christopher W. Luhar-Trice’s photographs from The Dixie Square Project beautifully document this curious artifact of American consumerism. This full-color book includes historical information about Dixie Square, maps, and over 50 color photographs by the artist telling the visual story of America’s most famous dead mall, best known for it's appearance in the 1980 film The Blues Brothers.
