Kevin Lair

Winterset, IA

Kevin Lair’s work engages environmental history as part of creative inquiry undertaken at the Westbrook Artists' Site (WAS), a collaborative arts venture in central Iowa, part of what was once the great North American tall grass prairie.  In 2013, Lair relaunched WAS and deepened its mission, focusing on the history and condition of the land itself, to provide an experiential laboratory for exploration of the post-industrial rural condition.
