Stadia

We have just started working on the renovation of a small baseball stadium, as a result of which I have been both visiting venues (the spectacularly light Honda Center in California) and looking at pictures of old stadiums, as you see here.

These are scans from Kodachrome slides that my son made while archiving the work of New York City painter Andy Jurinko, my friend and sometime collaborator (“Frozen Ropes”, Broadway at 74).

See if you can name the nine structures without peeking at the rollovers.

Two still exist.

The bottom structure, capacity 92,000, is a mile from our undergraduate studio, close enough that on autumn Saturdays you could hear the sellout crowd screaming while you drew.
