The Howard Art Project's New Exhibition | Jan 9

Howard Art Project

A solo show by Allison Cekala

Cekala portrays this complex and beautiful system through video projection and photography, documenting extraordinary landscapes and massive machines. Her photographs echo the immense and unbelievable scale of the importation and exportation of road salt, a seemingly banal substance with a dynamic history. Road salt is the story of just one material in our modern global economy. Salt Mountain asks you to consider where materials come from and what stories they tell.

Dates and Times:

Jan 9 – 23, 2014 / Gallery hours Fri – Sun 12-6pm or by appointment
