The 48 Beer Project is creating Multimedia Cultural Documentary for the Craft Beer Industry

The 48 Beer Project is a cultural exploration of the craft beer industry, through engagement with breweries, vendors, customers, and the general public. I chose to travel to all lower 48 states to collaborate with one brewery per state on one of a kind beer label art, mural and various other artwork. The project kicked off last September (2018) from Portland, Maine, where I collaborated with Allagash Brewing Company, and spent the past 9 + months on the road. I began the journey in a short school bus that I converted, myself, into a tiny art studio/home last summer. The bus had some mechanical issues that eventually led to total engine failure, at 10k miles, and is now stationary in the desert of southern Arizona! I had to scramble to raise funds for a new ride, and was able to make that happen, thankfully!

To date, I have worked with 33 breweries! But, beer labels aside, this project seeks to tell a story of how the craft beer industry is single handedly changing the face of American culture for the better, by creating community, and offering positive space to nurture new relationships.  

Through a combination of written text of my experience on the road, interviews, and my personal background, audio recordings paired with photo and video, as well as artwork for the breweries and that which I have collected from strangers along the way, I will present the the project as a sort of retrospective-an art exhibition moving across time, from a collection of my personal history-who I am, where I came from, what drove me to this project-to the conception of the project and all the prep and bus work, and continuing in a progression from the first collaborations until the final piece.
