The Rock County Historical Society's Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center presents a year long program to educate the public about the area's food history while helping area food pantries. The program includes an exhibit, events, and a website offering multimedia galleries, free recipes and healthy eating tips related to Rock County's food traditions. Each month will see a new food focus, and local individuals, families and food businesses are invited to share their cultural and signature culinary creations. See website for hours.
Rider and photographer Josh Kurpius’ work reveals the many contradictions embedded within his experiences on the road with friends; quiet reflections among the noise of vintage choppers, broken-down standstills after rolling with the throttle wide open for miles, camaraderie while surrounded by the solitude and emptiness of the endless horizon. A sense of timelessness runs throughout the photographs. References in the images look just as plausibly 1970s as they do modern, from the riders and their bikes to the landscape.
Taken during a series of road trips, Josh’s photos not only expose the beauty of America, but the beauty that can be captured in off-moments-those that he regularly finds himself wrapped up in. Often, the moment reveals itself in the most serendipitous way. The machines Josh and his friends ride can only go so far without refueling or needing a repair. While riding across the country, they find themselves stopping in places one might barely notice if they were in a car, or even on a new bike. Josh’s expressive images capture his friend’s reactions to the situation or to what is being seen. The prospect of missing that one moment, both from the perspective of experiencing it and the possibilities of catching it on film, lures Josh back to the road.
More than thirty original photographs by Josh Kurpius will be on display. Living Lost runs from January 17, 2014 through May 18, 2014.
