William E. Jones: Youngstown/Steel Town

February 1

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Saturday, repeating until February 29, 2020 12:00 am

This month in The Box, the evolution of an Ohio rust belt city is examined in a 2016 double-screen projection by Massillon-born, Los Angeles–based artist William E. Jones. The 1944 propaganda film Steel Town, which shows the booming wartime steel industry of Youngstown, Ohio, plays alongside contemporary footage of the city’s now-quiet empty streets and abandoned buildings, underscoring the bleak reality of this postindustrial city. (6 mins., HD video).
Shows each day in February that the Wex is open.
