Johnson County Historic Poor Farm—New Collaborations

This month's Obermann Conversation features graduate students who have a vision for the Johnson County Historic Poor Farm property, as well as Johnson County Local Food and Planning Specialist Shanti Sellz and community collaborators of the Poor Farm. Following the Conversation, we will screen Anna Swanson's new short film, Taking It to the Streets: Ten Years of the Obermann Graduate Institute. Filmmaker and recent Cinematic Arts MFA Swanson will be in attendance to answer questions.
