Field Studies: Critical Inquiry heads to Wolves & People for Soul Boat




For Critical Inquiry on December 7th, the class ventured to Wolves & People small-batch brewery in Newberg, Oregon to visit Larry Kirkland's Soul Boat as part of a conversation on 'object as metaphor'.


Led by 1st and 2nd year MFA in Craft students, the programming around Soul Boat partnered object histories and ideas of site with historical and fictional texts. Formerly part of a traveling Smithsonian exhibition in the 1990s, Soul Boat is now permanently installed in Wolves & People's historic 1800s barn and brewhouse.
