Behind the scenes at Jack's Army and Navy Store
Once the home of Jack's Army and Navy Store, 49 Eagle Street in North Adams, Massachusetts, is starting a new life as the INSTALLATION SPACE.
"American Graffiti", featuring photographs of the 1950's era graffiti found in the store's former stockrooms, is gallery owner Anna Farrington's tribute to Jack's Army and Navy Store. The graffiti tell stories of love, pride, and aspiration. It's messages are immediately relate-able to anyone who has ever been in love, hoped for the future, or left their own marks behind. Paired with "artifacts" also found in the space during the building renovation, the photos pay homage to daily life in the North Adams of that time.
