BFA Student’s Work Included in Touring Exhibition ‘Looking At Appalachia’
Tiffany Dodd ’20 is currently exhibiting her photograph “Liliana at Dusk” at the Massillon Museum in Ohio as part of the touring exhibit Looking At Appalachia. Upon completion of the tour, the work will be archived at The Archive of Documentary Arts at Duke University.
Looking at Appalachia began five years ago as a means to show the visual diversity of the region and serve as a counterpoint to the stereotypes born from the photos that came out of the region during Lyndon B Johnson’s “War on Poverty”.
Yearly, each state represented by the Appalachia region exhibits photography, writing, and audio/visual work in the online collection on lookingatappalachia.org.
Tiffany’s image was included in the 2016 online collection and was also one of the images selected to be included in the new touring print exhibition. “’Liliana at Dusk’ was an image I captured while my daughter was playing outside with a friend and happened to get struck below her eye by a stick,” Tiffany said. “She dried her eyes, cleaned her face and claimed to be “just fine” so she could savor the last few moments of daylight outside with her friends.”
