Stuart Chittenden spent August 2015 traveling Nebraska in an RV to engage with the state’s residents. His project sought narratives that define and unite us. Chittenden set up public conversation spaces and talked with residents about their lives, cultures and stories. This exhibition will feature photographs of the people and places that represent the Nebraska voice encountered in this project. As part of the exhibition, QR codes/web links will be used with the image of a person, which will tie to associated audio derived from the conversations. During the opening reception, Chittenden will present an artist lecture sharing what he discovered about Nebraska, and its communities and people. The public will be engaged in a conversation about the project and invited to reflect about their communities, landscapes and stories. Visit 830Nebraska.com to learn more about the project.
The project is funded in part by Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and is sponsored by the Omaha Creative Institute.
