This project presents four distinct voices of a Lexington community through the physical manifestation of an exhibition. The voices, consisting of maps, scholars, the press, and local residents, will be extracted and displayed as separate entities. It will be the role of the audience to put the abstracted pieces back together and to construct Goodloetown as a community. The humanities moves forward from feelings that are universally human and understands their meaning through investigation expressed through the arts. By specifically addressing two areas of social activity within Goodloe, the church and the garage, the project documents a fraction of the incredible wealth of humanity found in Goodloetown today. Although this incredibly vibrant community survives in the shadow of Thoroughbred Park despite an historic lack of attention from the surrounding city, it is now in danger of being displaced and ultimately destroyed.
