Over the last few years Cindy Tower has been going around the country in search of ruins - abandoned factories and shipyards in Texas, Connecticut and Brooklyn - and immortalizing them in paint. "I...grew up with a Yankee make-thrift aesthetic," she says. "I decided to paint paintings honoring vanishing American industries because everything I love is disappearing." Now living in Missouri, Tower has been at work in a former coal plant in the St. Louis area. She was given a survey at Southeast Missouri State's Crisp Museum; director Stanley Grand offers his perspective on the "Workplace Series."
