“To see the world, things dangerous to come to,
to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel.

That is the purpose of life.”
-James Thurber

The Life of the Ghost Town exhibition represented a unique and intimate look into the real lives of Ghost Town artists and community members. The exhibition is designed in conjunction with the conclusion of the Sherman Cultural District’s Focalpoint project with the goal of bringing more images of life to the fantastic body of art, architecture, and nature photography already submitted to Focalpoint.
