From the gallery's press materials:
"'Ruins of a Holy Land'" offers a glimpse into Holy Land USA, a shrine and tourist attraction in Waterbury, Connecticut that officially closed to the public in 1984. The 19 acre property includes miniature replicas of ancient Bethlehem and Jerusalem and once attracted over 200,000 persons each year. Joy Bush captures the piety, former glory, and disrepair as chronicled through her twenty years of pilgrimage to the site.
