March 19 through May 16, 2010, Pratt Museum Special Exhibits Gallery
Michael Walsh and Asia Freeman’s exhibit explores stories, truths, myths, feats and failures memorialized in our backyards. Since pioneering days, we Alaskans have been known to hoard a lot of stuff. Our backyards don’t conceal as much as they reveal shared experiences and dilapidated dreams. Working with found objects, moving images and sound, collaborating multi-media artists reveal down-home Alaskan experiences for Backyard, Alaska.
