Our Valley Speaks: A Sanpete Experience

May 29, 2021

Opening today, Our Valley Speaks is a virtual exhibition, traversing Sanpete Valley, Utah, that features commissioned site-specific videos by multiple artists, plus informational videos by historians and local residents. Content is viewable at select locations through the Popwalk App.

This opportunity challenged me to try something I’ve wanted to do for a long time—collaborate with my mother who was raised on a small family ranch/farm in Southern Idaho—and my 6-min. video, Feathers, features an interview with her about the division of labor surrounding the killing and dressing of chickens, bookended by short tales of my grandfather and my great-great-grandmother (who lived in Sanpete Valley from 1856-1865).
