I just posted that under my wife's account.
My apologies to the Facebook followers of my wife but at the same time a careful 'AWARENESS' message.
Asbestos Abatement Professional Services - 1995 -1997 Detroit Michigan
I removed asbestos from large industrial buildings for 3 years as a certified asbestos abatement professional. I went to the 'art opening' about 6 months ago. The interior conditions were deplorable and it seemed to me more of a place to give 'melanoma' to the community than any thing else. There were visible piles of asbestos that had 'rotted' off of pipes and structures. Yes amounts that are considered ' highly elevated' levels of asbestos particules in the air. Yet as they had my unknowning wife there with a host of other artists - I did stay indoors for over 10 minutes all the time worrying and considering how long the other participant had exposed themselves to such elevated levels of pure airborn 'cancer'.
I advise some arm twisting before allowing any public to re enter that build until the entire gigantic building and supporting structures has undergone a comprehensive asbestos abatement, containment, and proper disposal of all the very dangerous Asbestos!!!
Better sooner than later!
