Generally Desert Exhibition

October 24 @ 10:00 am - October 27 @ 4:00 pm

Generally walks into the life of an Appalachian food desert — with elements of a home and the grocery store. A combination of written stories by journalist Xena Bunton and artwork by Appalachian creatives share conversations of poverty, food insecurity, traditions and acceptance in Appalachia.

The immersive exhibition, funded by New Media Advocacy Project’s Appalachia Reframed cohort, promotes sustainable journalism with recycled grocery items to showcase photographs and stories of Appalachians impacted from a food desert. A pop of yellow from a dollar store bag outlines experiences from real stories in the secluded areas of the region.

Reception Saturday, Oct. 22 1:45-4 pm
Exhibition Oct. 24 – 27 10am-4pm
