  • Searching for Home Video Exhibition Exploration

    http://daltongallery.agnesscott.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Searching-for-Home-Final.-SD-540p.mp4 This year, more than ever, the search for home feels especially relevant. Is home now a place for business, schooling our children and family time? Is our current home ideal or just temporary? Searching for home explores the many ways people are contemplating home in 2020.
