City Center Square and Urban Culture Project present “Panoramic Postcards,” a window installation by Lawrence/Kansas City-based artist Judith G. Levy. To remain on view for approximately one year, the installation was commissioned by City Center Square for its south-facing window on 12th Street, just west of Main, through an open call to artists facilitated by Urban Culture Project. The installation relates to the United States Post Office located within City Center Square, specifically taking the idea of the picture postcard as inspiration.

Judith G. Levy’s installation features four large-scale digital images resembling old panoramic postcards, which are mounted on Sintra and suspended within the window space. The images are composed from elements extracted from an array of historic picture postcards, recombined and reconfigured to “evoke a new look at the past and arouse some questions about the present.” Like much of Levy’s work, these deceptively picturesque images blur fact and fiction toward investigating broader social and cultural issues and revealing larger truths.

As part of this project, Levy will distribute free sender-friendly-size panoramic postcards several times over the course of the installation, including on Monday, October 18, from 11am to 5pm, and on Wednesday, October 20, 11am-5pm.
