In spring 2019, I was awarded a mid-career fellowship by the James Marston Fitch Foundation for a project called "Preserving What Is Missing: In Conversation about the Architecture of Minerva Parker Nichols." Focusing on the portfolio of Minerva Parker Nichols, this project examines the histories we don’t preserve, testing new methodologies to identify, evaluate, and commemorate a body of work that defies traditional preservation frameworks. As 8+ years of research and documentation have proven, her career presents an opportunity to prototype new ways to talk about non-traditional narratives and sustain unconventional historic places. 

 

Through a special limited-series podcast and video shorts, this fellowship will use storytelling in various forms and scales to fuel a forward-looking conversation about the past.

 

New media will be posted on this page in 2020. Stay tuned!
