"The Chisholm Trail: Driving the American West" on tour
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail, Symphony in the Flint Hills partnered with Flint Hills Design and Lost Trail Soda to create "The Chisholm Trail: Driving the American West" traveling exhibit. This original exhibit invites visitors of all ages to explore the Chisholm Trail from its inception in the 1860s to today. Exhibit highlights include an interactive musical exploration of the scores of verses to the cowboy song, "The Old Chisholm Trail," video and audio clips of movies and songs that reference the Chisholm Trail, and several artistically rendered, life-size longhorn cattle.
The Chisholm Trail fundamentally changed the American West. From the birth of the cowboy as icon to the revival of the cattle industry, the Old Chisholm Trail helped shape our popular culture by altering how we thought of the American West and the individuals who lived there.

Large-Scale Mixed Media Installation on exhibit Jan. 20
A large-scale mixed media installation - part drawing, part sculpture - is an exhibit by Amy Reckley that questions how we define drawing and traditional landscape. Join us in the Symphony in the Flint Hills Gallery for the installation viewing on January 17 and 18 from 1 to 5 p.m. and the opening reception on January 20 from 1 to 3 p.m. with an artist presentation at 1:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Reckley grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan and has since lived, traveled and exhibited worldwide. She questions different definitions in drawing - whether the work is a large three-dimensional installation, a tiny sculpture or just marks of graphite on paper. Her work examines the physical and psychological dimensions of space and not-so-familiar objects, often addressing architecture and landscape through common construction materials, repurposed elements and nostalgic surfaces.
Reckley has exhibited throughout the United States and internationally. Recent site-related works have been installed in the Santa Ana Canyon, CA, at The Soap Factory in Minneapolis, the Loveland Feed and Grain in CO and the Saugatuck Center for the Arts in Michigan. Her residency awards include the Barstow Artist-in-Residence at Central Michigan University; Ox-Bow Summer School of Art and Artists' Residency; and ART342. She currently teaches Painting and Sculpture at Hope College in Holland, Michigan and has a studio in Grand Rapids.
