American Camp

 Drawing from the National Park’s archive of primary source materials, interviews, ecological and geological research, familial and personal narrative, the artists at American Camp present moving image, sound, text based work, and events that explore migration, ecology, and the messiness of becoming American.  While not a formal collaboration per say, the artists share gathered materials passing on that which they find important to the others' inquiry — be it a poetic geological term, a family story, or an invite to a butterfly release. 

 Artists at the American Camp include: Gretchen Frances Bennett, Cat Clifford, Lynne McCabe, Ruth Robbins, Barbara Earl Thomas.
