Rich Gabe has been fascinated/ obsessed with art environments ever since touring the Watts Tower in 2009. In 2014, he graduated with a master’s degree in museum studies from John F. Kennedy University. His graduate thesis studied the intersection between artist-built environments and tourism. While in school he interned at SPACES Archive, where he helped prepare an online toolbox detailing business related challenges and solutions for art environments. In 2015, he started thelandbehind.com, a seldom-updated, mostly abandoned, irreverent, art environment travel blog. When not blogging (which is often) he plans trips and travels around America’s backwoods, visiting and documenting art environments, unusual museums, and other idiosyncratic and fascinating places.
