Bridging the Mississippi: Spans across the Father of Waters
Exhibition Dates: June 05, 2020—Dec. 12, 2020
Philip Gould’s Bridging the Mississippi: Spans across the Father of Waters is an expansive account of America’s greatest waterway. The impetus for this project, bridges, frequently do not receive their due as architectural wonders although they speak to American ingenuity and can-do attitude as few other structures do. The resulting push and pull between grand narrative and singularly lived experience in these images hints at the complexity of creating a series that represents, as much as possible, the entirety of the Mississippi River.
