THE AMERICAN IMAGINATION exhibition at LightSource
The Roswell UFO Incident chapter from my in-progress project, The American Imagination will be on display at LightSource (1661 Tennessee Street, #2W in San Francisco) from September to October.
The American Imagination visualizes a wide variety of American stories. Myths, tall tales and legends incorporating elements of the fantastical often contain potent fragments of truth, holding history, fears and aspirations of a people. LightSource hosted the inaugural exhibition of this project, featuring the chapter that considers the Roswell UFO incident that considers how the world's first detonation of the nuclear bomb in White Sands, New Mexico gave rise to enduring UFO myths in the area.
