Free and open to all.

50 States Project Sendoff Party

In times of national uncertainty and distress, artists seek out the freedom of the open road, taking visual stock of the state of the nation. It is a distinctly American reaction, undertaken by artists and writers again and again over the past century. With the deep ideological chasms in our nation suddenly laid bare in the current turbulent atmosphere of America, photography Tom Woodruff and visual artist Kate Fleming are traveling to all 50 states to meet people and make art that chronicles what unites and divides us.
