A View From The Backstretch will be at Vermont Folklife Center's Vision and Voice Documentary Gallery from June 8 - September 8th. Open Tuesday - Saturday 10 am - 5pm.
Over the past year, the Vermont Folklife Center has been working with McAdams to deepen the connection between the public and these track workers by further documenting their life stories using the oral interview. In this exhibit, through photography and interview, visitors will experience an intimate look at an occupation unseen by most.
