Hometown Story: Youngstown Steel Kitchens, 2012

The Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio

Hometown Story: Youngstown Steel Kitchens responded to the local history of this once thriving manufacturing city. It included a historic Youngstown Steel Kitchen television ad, a salesman’s job training film, vintage print ads, and curated objects including remnants of a Youngstown Steel Kitchen and a salesman’s kit. I created an experimental video projection and a series of archival prints.
