Over the last year, one of my most significant projects was putting together my INTERSECTION photographic art exhibition. I haven’t posted about this side of my work at Jordan’s Journey, as this blog focuses on the genealogy side of things. Of course, the overall Jordan’s Journey project is a multimedia art project of which genealogical research is only one part. So I wanted to be sure to tell you about INTERSECTION. INTERSECTION is my follow-up to Jordan’s Journey. It’s not a sequel but a spiritual successor that takes the most specific art aspects and extracts them into a heritage-influenced art exhibition. The project’s focus is my debut museum exhibition, under my artist name luke kurtis, which opened on March 8th at Massillon Museum in Massillon, OH. I also published a book of photographs and writing that serves as the exhibition catalog.Read More
I’ve been on the road for work and preparing for my upcoming lectures in Northwest Georgia. And the time is upon us! Tomorrow I will be in LaFayette, Georgia and Tuesday I will be in Summerville, Georgia. My art exhibition of photographs from the Jordan’s Journey project will also be on display at the Summerville Library starting this Tuesday. The events are free and open to the public. I hope that those of you in the area will be sure to attend. It will be great to see you all in person, and I hope to make it a unique experience… just like the Jordan’s Journey book itself. Hope to see you there!
