“I took the pieces you threw away and put them togather [sic] by night and day washed by rain, dried by sun, a million pieces all in one.”
This large-scale photograph in Marquette University’s Brew Bayou was taken at the Rev. Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden. Finster (1916-2001) transformed his Summerville, Georgia home and surrounding acres into a folk art outdoor museum. The “I took the pieces” sign is now part of the permanent collection of the High Museum in Atlanta.
