Exhibit: American Farmer @ Charles H. MacNider Art Museum
Dec 1 @ 10:00 am

When photographer Paul Mobley set out to capture the soul of our country’s farm communities, he encountered an enduring rural culture that remains rooted in the principles of tradition, family, integrity, and hard work. Crisscrossing the country, from Alaska to Florida, Mobley and his camera were welcomed time and time again into the homes of hundreds of farm families. Visit after visit, Mobley came to know the independent farmer’s spirit from both behind the lens and across the dinner table. He sought the elusive spirit of agriculture, looking for subjects that mirrored the project’s sense of risk and independence. The resulting images show farmers with a strong sense of where they belong in the universe, a close connection to the land and their day-to-day work as it affects the rest of the world. American Farmer is now open at the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum in Mason City.  Admission to the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum is free.  Please visit the Museum’s website, macniderart.org, for the most up to date information and visitor instructions.  You can also call the Museum at 641-421-3666.
