Scholarship Exhibition

I chose a piece by Sarah Christianson called Christianson Homestead. There were three different black and white photographs of three different homesteads. I know it seems very random why I would choose something so plain out of all the other pieces in the gallery. The reason I chose this particular piece was because of the location of the pictures. My dad was born and raised in Hillsboro, ND, which is where one of the pictures is taken. It also has significance because I do know a group of Christiansons from up there. It brought back memories of playing with my grandma and grandpa at their homestead. We also have pictures just like that in my house of my dad's homestead. I really enjoyed this piece because of the memories it brought back to me.
