When we think of Grinnell as a place, we often sum up our location as simply a small town with a small elite college in a sea of corn. Yet we know that Grinnell, as a community, is much more. To reveal and celebrate those many intertwining yet often invisible facets, Faulconer Gallery presents four projects aimed at inspiring us to rethink what we know about our place. Projects include an examination of attitudes towards work; a photo essay on multiple, and contested, uses of a site; an installation investigating the implications of national and international cargo shipped through Grinnell; and a look at current and pending environmental issues facing the community.
