Esprit de Corps: photographs by Walker Pickering
Sep 11, 2017 - Oct 20, 2017 | Art Exhibition | 10:00AM - 5:00PM | KHN Gallery
At first glance, it seems that marching bands should no longer exist. With a decrease in civic engagement over the past few decades, a decline in popularity was poised to follow. But in America, the band became inextricably linked to football, so it persists as anachronism. With arts budgets under attack in the US, vital programs like these are at extreme risk, especially in less affluent areas where they're needed most. Marching band isn't about music or marching, it's about people learning to pursue a common goal that transcends their own individual efforts.
Walker Pickering began this body of photographic work in 2012. The exhibition aims to capture the namesake group pride or spirit as well as both personal and shared nostalgia evoked and embodied by marching band culture.
