Why should you attend?

“[Michna-Bales] creates an archive of historical sites both famous and obscure, discovered through academic inquiry at historical societies and oral histories passed down through generations. Beneath her lens, the land and its remaining structures are forever haunted by the ghosts of the past, reminding us of both our potential for good and evil.”―Feature Shoot
