Rural Modern

Rural life and farming — and with it, the hard work, the understanding of the land, and the stories of those who farm it — are at the heart of Schenectady County. Today, after centuries of fields and flocks, we’ve created a rural landscape that is fruitful, beautiful, and largely misunderstood by those who live in our County’s cities and suburbs. “Rural Modern” explores the stories of Schenectady’s contemporary rural farmers through photographs and stories.

This exhibition was made possible by grants from Humanities New York and NYSCA.
