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.
