Excerpts from New Buffalo

Art Kopecky 1972
Young Art

This is what we counter, unending development; the trend to get everyone into cities - abandoning small farms - getting people to buy all they need. We keep building cities. freeways, suburbs, and shopping centers. It's disturbing. Our culture is so addicted to building, as though the earth were expanding beneath our feet. Us, I see as an alternative, not dependent on having jobs building cities and roads, destroying the natural landscape. I would rather see us spread out in the country, oriented to the land and streams and plains; not oriented to the commute and pavement."
