After approximately nine months of physical work on the space at 1718 Rialto Street, Kunzhaus saw its opening on Friday, March 11, 2016. Artist Robert Kusmirowski celebrated the completion of his extraordinary piece with a lively reception and the first guided tours of the house.
Despite having photographed the house throughout its creation (or perhaps in part because of it), the final walk through left me absolutely astonished. Experiencing the art as a whole, in addition to appreciating each room individually, solidified my understanding of the work and allowed me to value it to an ever higher degree.
The following photographs, taken on Sunday, March 13, will progress through the four-story house as the tour does. Check back for more photographs of the transformation and information on how to visit Kunzhaus. – Jessica
