To be homeward bound is an act of returning. It is not limited to physical acts, such as driving home for the holidays, but can be a journey of emotional and spiritual return, reconnection, and recognition. The student works included in this one-night exhibition and readings explore self, home, and community through each artist's own experience and creative practice, connecting to a sense of place and time and one's own homeward movement.
About the Pop-Up
As part of the programming around Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South students from several classes at the Durham School of the Arts had the opportunity to tour and engage deeply with the exhibit. Students from Jack Watson's class created visual works, while students from Caitlin Donovan's class created written works. Selected works from both will be presented Wednesday night. Finally, students in class with teacher Amber Santibañez's were visited by Southbound photographer Titus Brooks Heagins for a series of workshops exploring outward expressions of an inner state, and how one's 'visual truths' provide glimpses into who they are and who they want to be.
