|SKYSCRAPER (c. 1998), BY KEN SWANSON|
A BIRTHDAY GIFT FROM MY MOTHER, RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, JULY 1998
A small print of a skyscraper. My mom gave this to me for my birthday in 1998.
Backstory: At the time, I thought that I would be moving into a new condominium tower, The Arlington, in the summer of 1999. Since I would basically be living in a skyscraper (The Arlington was to be 42 stories tall), Mom thought this was kind of a cool piece of art. Since The Arlington has been massively delayed, I've since moved into a different, albeit still very nice, condominium in downtown Charlotte.
