Altered Land: Photography in the 1970s. Sheldon Museum of Art, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, August 7, 2009–January 3, 2010.

Altered Land showcased the work of several influential landscape photographers (including Thomas Barrow, Joe Deal, Betty Hahn, and Steve Yates) who emerged in the 1960s and '70s and whose experiments redefined the medium of photography. Some elements of the images on display were manipulated, tinted, and rearranged, while others were presented as Xerox copies, hand colored, or sewn with thread.

Working with Curator Ed Rumbaugh, I performed collections research, developed content for the exhibition’s marketing and interpretive materials, and assisted with the organization and installation of Altered Land.
