Celebrating the enduring spirit of the diverse women of the West, Home Lands offers a rich and real portrait of the West that is in large part unfamiliar. This dynamic re-thinking of the history of the West challenges stereotypes of women's roles through the stories of the Native American women who first made their homes in the region as well as the women, from many different cultures, who have migrated to the West for hundreds of years. The aesthetic expression of the exhibit echos this unique story by incorporating a series of dynamic micro environments, each with their own character. Over 185 objects, in-depth interpretive stories, videos and the building materials of the exhibits themselves help to shape this story. Homelands will be traveling to various museums and cultural institution until 2012.
This project was created in collaboration with M/M design, Los Angeles.
