The College of the Redwoods Creative Arts Gallery presents Between the Bottomlands & the World, an installation of experimental documentary videos, photographs, and narrative writing about Beardstown, Illinois, a rural town transformed by immigration and global agricultural production. The exhibition runs from September 3 to October 3, 2019, with a public reception on Tuesday, September 3 from 4:00pm to 6:00 pm. Beardstown is home to enormous agribusiness operations, towering grain terminals, and a massive meatpacking plant. Chicago-based artists Ryan Griffis and Sarah Ross traveled to this region, documenting its economy, geography, and infrastructure.
