Show’s statement:


Over these past few years our sense of place may have shifted. While we were once rooted in our home towns and usual routine, many have explored, traveled and created  a new life for themselves.

The opposite is also true. Some of us rediscovered their homes and familiar places, now with new eyes and different priorities.

Whatever our journey might be, we all search for places that bring us comfort, meaning, and belonging.

These places may be a forest preserve, a high-rise office building, your kitchen table, a garden, a waterway. People, new relationships and activities can also be the anchor of these recent transformations.
