Tom & Kate's Excellent Adventure

This campaign ended on April 30, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Capitol Hill Arts Workshop by clicking here!

Tom and Kate are going on an excellent adventure and would love it if you joined them!

Meaningful conversation is largely absent amid the intense division and discord found across the American landscape today and reconciliation seems increasingly distant. Without education, reflection and dialogue this chasm can only intensify.  Artists are uniquely situated to contribute to a much needed civil national discourse by capturing and interpreting the ideals of our fractured nation. 

The 50 States Project is a mobile artist residency in which photographer, Tom Woodruff and visual artist Kate Fleming will travel to each state to explore regional similarities and differences. They will visit arts and community organizations at each stop, engaging with locals about contemporary cultural issues and creating works of art in the field. 

Throughout their travels, they will  serve as a mobile classroom for students at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW), facilitating dialogue on their findings and sharing their work via Skype, a project website, and a blog. Upon returning to DC, the artists will present their research through an exhibition, public programs and an exhibit catalogue which will be shared with the communities they visited.

The project will be funded by CHAW, artist grants, personal savings and community support like yours.   You can be a part of this important work by making a contribution today.   

 As a thank you, you will receive one-of-a-kind gifts created by Tom and Kate.
