Classroom Connections: Alain Desvergnes

Currently, the UM Museum has a breathtaking exhibit of photographs by French photographer Alain Desvergnes exploring Faulkner's fictional Yoknapatawpha County.

Portraits as Landscapes, Landscapes as Portraits: Yoknapatawpha County in the 1960's is on view at the UM Museum through August 17, 2013.

Second graders in Mrs. Bates' INSIGHTS class at Oxford Elementary viewed posters of Faulkner's unpublished map of his fictional county and created their own fictional counties inspired by both their imaginations and places around Oxford. We love seeing such creativity in the classroom!
