Abstract: The subject of my thesis is a recent event in the community in which I live. Visual investigation consists of drawings, paintings and mixed-media prints and collages that serve as parodies of the event. An accompanying booklet includes the initial drawings of people who live and work in the neighborhood and a fictional account derived from my knowledge of the event which occurred as follows: A new tenant on the corner began using the rental house for prostitution and drug dealing in 2005. In August of 2006, someone threw a Molotov cocktail at the house and almost burned it down. On the same day, a church down the street was celebrating "Community Day" and advertised the event with a hand-painted, wooden sign on the corner. The sign consisted of two sheets of plywood 30" x 48" hinged at the top, along with three small, floating balloons attached by strings.
