Ancillary public humanities programs to accompany the NEH on the Road: Farm Life traveling exhibition.

Farm Life is the story of farm families and rural communities facing change. Visitors to the exhibition’s farmhouse, fields, barn, and local gathering spots will explore how political, economic, and cultural roots influence families today, both on and off the farm. Instead of focusing on the technology of farm life, this exhibition features farming’s social and cultural context.
