Whitman, Alabama: A documentary project by Jennifer Crandall

Stephen Kustra Project Space / Blue Galleries at the Center for the Visual Arts
Sept.7-Oct. 27
Reception: 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16
Visiting filmmaker Jennifer Crandall, Oct. 14-15 (details coming soon)


“This is an experiment in using documentary and poetry to reveal the threads that tie us together—as people, as states, and as a nation. For two years, filmmaker Jennifer Crandall has crisscrossed this deep Southern state, inviting people to look into a camera and share a part of themselves through the words of Walt Whitman. The 19th-century poet’s ‘Song of Myself’ is a quintessential reflection of our American identities.”

The exhibition was organized by Kirsten Furlong and Jacky O’Connor with support from the Boise State University School of the Arts and the Idaho Film Collection. Image courtesy of Jennifer Crandall.
