The World from My Front Porch

Posted by on Mar 06 2008 | Other, Photography

Spring is near, and new things are popping up all over the museum. Eastman House’s spring exhibition Larry Towell: The World from My Front Porch is currently on view through June 15. Below are some shots of this multi-media exhibition that presents a retrospective of work by the photographer Larry Towell, featuring photographs, writings, and audio recordings of original spoken words and music performances.

The view from Eastman House’s front porch is changing as well. Most noticeably is the I Know It Happened And It Happened Like This installation by artist Heather Layton. In conjunction with Eastman House’s Loss/Hope exhibition series, this monument is founded on the idea that we, as citizens, are equally responsible for the welfare of an entire community, not just the issues that directly affect us as individuals. All of the items have been donated by members of the Rochester community. Visitors continue to add to the pile throughout the installation. Below are a few views of the monument.
