Kim Stringfellow’s Jackrabbit Homestead at Autry National Center

Kim Stringfellow’s Jackrabbit Homestead
at Autry National Center, Los Angeles
Sep 13, 2014 - Aug 23, 201
Through photography and audio interviews, artist Kim Stringfellow explores how the desire to flee the urban sprawl of Los Angeles and stake a claim in the fierce California desert resulted in both a collection of derelict cabins originally built in the 1950s and the reclamation of the land and structures for a burgeoning artistic community today. The exhibition also explores issues of land use and ecology that complicate the settlement of the arid West.

In 2012, Stringfellow became the second recipient of the Theo Westenberger Award for Artistic Excellence, presented by the Autry to honor contemporary women whose work in photography, film, and new media transforms how we see the American West.
