    Painting in a style reminiscent of vintage tourist postcards, The Disappointed Tourist is an ongoing project of 300 paintings of lost sites suggested by members of the public. It was inspired by the urge to repair what has been lost due to the forces of war, time, ideology, gentrification, and natural disasters. It attempts to honor the trauma underlying the nostalgia that results from our collective and individual losses, while celebrating the human attachment to places both real and aspirational. With our partner organizations we disseminated a call for suggestions throughout the Glassboro community and received over 40 submissions. Artist Ellen Harvey selected eight sites that have been added to this new iteration of the installation including Whitney Brother’s Glass Factory, Salem Oak, Bay Point, Zee Orchards, Eighty Acres, Palace of Depression, Vineland Speedway, and grandparent’s backyard.
