The Pioneers

April 27 - June 10

In a world that is constantly in flux, where people physically move more frequently between cities, states, and countries, and mentally and emotionally encounter more drastic points of view, Jenie wants to recognize the stories of those who have the courage to venture forward, with the purpose of connecting and improving our communities. These re the stories of pioneers, mapmakers, navigators, and guides. These are the stories of families who have moved with no guarantee of common language or opportunity. These are the stories of boomtowns turned ghost towns turned tourist towns, of migrants and locals alike, who dare to do something different and to find common ground. These are stories of conservation, of our values and our communities, coupled with an embrace of change and versatility.
