Real Rural Launch Party
Free Event at the California Historical Society, 678 Mission Street, San Francisco
The Bill Lane Center for the American West and Roots of Change are proud to announce the launch of journalist and photographer Lisa Hamilton's innovative multimedia project "Real Rural" — bringing California's rural life to the state's urban public. Hamilton's portraits of people and places, along with surprising, provocative quotes from the subjects, will be featured on BART trains throughout the Bay Area beginning in late January, and on an interactive web site. The California Historical Society will mount a related exhibition this fall of Hamilton's photographs shown in conjunction with relevant materials from the California Historical Society's vast collection. Join us to see a preview of the project and meet Lisa Hamilton. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 415.357.1848, ext. 229.
