LOOK & SEE is a cinematic portrait of the changing landscapes and shifting values of rural America in the era of industrial agriculture, as seen through the mind's eye of Wendell Berry.
Wendell Berry, one of America’s most significant living writers, captures the rolling hills and close-knit community of Henry County, Kentucky – where Berry as lived and farmed since the mid-1960’s. Through Wendell’s eyes, we see both the changing landscapes of rural America in the era of industrial agriculture and the redemptive beauty in taking the unworn path.

What are the memories, stories and traditions that make our community home? What landmarks, customs, sights and sounds connect us with family, friends and neighbors, while highlighting our unique experience and identity? Sometimes, you’ve just got to write it down.
In the Communal Pen workshop, we will write to celebrate and explore our connections to place and community. Often, it is our written words that memory lives. The writing process can itself help us to awaken and preserve thoughts and traditions, offering insight, understanding and respect to present and future generations. This three-hour workshop draws inspiration from the Smithsonian exhibit Crossroads: Change in Rural America as a springboard for igniting our own stories, giving voice to our shared and individual experience of place.
Communal Pen is free and open to the public. Space is limited and registration is required.
