America: Lost and Found
Friday, July 20 – Saturday, August 11
Opening Reception July 20, 6-9 pm
“America: Lost and Found” is a tribute to the people who have unintentionally documented America and its culture through their discarded family photos. People's lives are filtered out through the mass of donations that pass through our doors daily. As we piece together found photos from 100 years ago until today, we build a narrative about the American experience that is both diverse and repetitive, anonymous and familiar. Through our collection of slides, family albums, prints and related ephemera such as vacation maps and postcards, we create an almost voyeuristic glimpse into what we value as Americans, and what we choose to document and save for future generations.
An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, July 20 from 6-9 pm. This opening marks the 100th Third Friday reception for the Green Gallery at The Scrap Exchange! The evening will include live music, refreshments, and a cookout with grilled hotdogs. Green Gallery openings are sponsored by PBR. Thank you PBR!
