Howdy. Now that we are all home, I thought we should fill in some holes in the blog for those of you who have been following the trip. Our exhibition at Little Wound School was an incredible display of all the work students did in the prior two weeks. While the turnout from the community wasn't what we had hoped it would be, those who attended had a good time and were complementary about the work and happy for the meal. Check out the sheet sized cyanotypes that each regional group produced. In case you can't figure out which is which, in order they are NY, AZ, SD and VT.
Also wanted to share images of a few quilts. The first is one that Sarah Swift created prior to the trip using imagery from last year's trip and the second was created during the trip by Sarah with help from two local Lakota woman. The cyanotypes incorporated into this quilt were made using student images and photograms.
A few more images from the exhibit including Raf's portraits which were a big hit.
A few more random images from the trip including Gaylen by the fire, Sarah reminiscing about the Reagen years and Raf always looking out for the program, trying to raise some additional funds in the airport by playing his jaw harp and dancing.
