People, Places, Power: Reframing the American Landscape, is an art exhibition which “focuses on the complex interplay between personal, social, political, and economic forces in rural and urban America. Among the various themes within the exhibition, attention will be focused on the necessary yet uneasy relationship that exists between power utilities and the public they serve. This topic is important to the town of Davidson–in which Davidson College is located–because it borders Lake Norman, a man-made lake created by the Cowans Ford Dam. The hydroelectric facility is owned and operated by Duke Energy, a Fortune 500 company headquartered in Charlotte, just twenty miles south of Davidson. Several other hydroelectric, nuclear, and coal burning facilities are located in communities surrounding the city.”
The exhibition will be on display from January 14 through February 25, 2011, and will feature works by contemporary photographers including Mitch Epstein, Lisa Kereszi, Victoria Sambunaris, David Hilliard, Andrew Moore, Ryan McGinley and others. The galleries are open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and weekends from noon to 4 p.m.
