Description

Institute for Visual Studies (IVS) – The “Picturing Harrisonburg” project is the first to trace the history and transformation of this community over the last 190 years. During this academic year the staff of IVS collected $50,000 in donations for the project. The project consists of a large-scale exhibition, an accompanying book and a series of local events that will examine and celebrate the community. The book, a central focus of this project, contains essays by different scholars and a selection of compelling images that will provide lasting documentation of the historical changes that have shaped the city.
