Project Description

Todd Deutsch, MFA, Associate Professor, received a $4,690.00 grant for his project Between Rivers Exhibition. My sabbatical in the spring of 2015 was spent making photographs in and around Prescott, Wisconsin, a small river town at the confluence of the Mississippi and St. Croix. I moved to there in 2007. I still feel like a visitor. Like many small towns, the social landscape in Prescott is dominated by a cluster of common family names. These families have been in the region for generations, forming a tightly knit and expansive network. They are generally welcoming people but I will always be an outsider. My Prescott will always be markedly different from theirs. The photographs I made depict a broad examination of place as a geographic and social construct. The collection of photographs now need to be assembled into a coherent portrait of the town. Funds from an Arts & Humanities Creative Projects grant would be used to frame a selection of approximately 30 images for a solo exhibition titled “Between Rivers”. The exhibition is scheduled to be presented at the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery in the fall of 2016.
