A group of us headed north last week to The Poor Farm, an exhibition and learning space created by Chicago artists and educators Michelle Grabner and Brad Killam. The huge, old building is a work in progress, both physically and creatively. From the 1870's to the 1930's, it housed destitute individuals who worked on the adjacent farm. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writer Mary Louise Schumacher has, and will be writing about the unique art space. While we were there, she was compiling components for a future multimedia piece, so stay tuned.
(Re: these images: I may be the last photographer with a phone to get the CameraBag app. And I love it, especially since I haven't shot with a square format camera in about 20 years.)
