For this installation, the artists removed some of the broken windows and replacement panels from the former National Licorice Company factory in Philadelphia and replaced them with new windows. The broken panels are framed between sheets of glass sandblasted with the paths of trails, railroads, rivers and tracings of cracks found in architectural elements of buildings from Philadelphia, New York and Washington, three cities that have once been US Capital Cities. The removed windows are displayed in the configuration found at the factory. The title is a quotation of a tourist slogan used by the state of Pennsylvania in the 1980s. Project made on the occasion of a solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia.
