A Chicken In Every Plot

A Chicken in Every Plot

January 28-September 5, 2016

Featuring the work of nationally-known Richmond photographer Alyssa C. Salomon, this exhibition examines the resurging practice of keeping backyard chickens and how our relationship with food sources continues to evolve. A Chicken in Every Plot includes portraits of Richmond-area urban and suburban chickens and the yards in which they thrive, an homage to the quintessential deviled egg, plus household objects and historic photographs from the Valentine's collection.
