Charting the American Bottom

October 3, 2015 - October 16, 2015
Givens Hall

In conjunction with a Divided City grant awarded to the project "Charting the American Bottom," Jennifer Colten (senior lecturer in photography) and Jesse Vogler (assistant professor of landscape architecture) have made regular excursions into the margins of the East St. Louis flood plane over the past year, occupying and recording its traces. This exhibition brings together photographs made by Colten with historical and interpretive text edited and written by Vogler.
