Restroom Photography by Andrew Ventimiglia

INSTRUCTIONS: Take a picture of a public restroom. It should be Muddy Waters, if convenient.

Pictured are the public restrooms for the Sinissippi Park Bandshell in Rockford, Illinois. While there is a larger facility provided around the corner for the audience, the Park's modest budget couldn't afford to build another bathroom attached to the Bandshell for the evening's performers.

Instead a pair of port-o-potties sit in a wooden pen behind the performance space. While the door is padlocked off-season, the bathrooms are open to the public during the summer season.

The dated architectural design of the Bandshell, its solitude in a seldom-used public park, the leaves strewn about the stage signalling chronic neglect are all characteristic of the best and worst my hometown has to offer.

Ahh, Rockford...the city that gave up in 1981.
