Smithsonian traveling exhibition

The Between Fences tour officially kicked off with a showing at the South Dakota State Fair in Huron. The exhibition will tour the state through July 4, 2009. The South Dakota Farmers Union provided additional funding for the exhibit. Between Fences is a visual cultural history of fences and land use that examines how neighbors and nations divide and protect, off end and defend, through the boundaries they build. Focusing on every region of the United States, the exhibit’s subjects include the defining of home, farm, and factory; the settling of the United States; the closing of the range in the South and its meaning to former slaves; and the making of fences, including a look at why Abe Lincoln became known as a rail splitter.
