Pacific Midwest 2.0 Exhibition - INOVA Gallery

In addition to showing selections from Processed Views: Surveying the Industrial Landscape, we had the  opportunity to exhibit two Carleton Watkins prints that inspired some of our views. We are grateful to the American Geographical Society Library, housed in the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee's Golda Maier Library, which loaned the prints for the duration of the exhibition.
