The unchosen ones

As I was traveling through the Minneapolis Airport, my eyes caught a display with a giant purple ribbon and images of livestock on the wall. As I neared the images, I was intrigued by a artist’s presentation called “The Unchosen Ones”. This was a project circling around county and the state fair and the student voices of NOT being selected for grand champion. It also highlights the journey of the relationship between competitors and their animals.

It was an interesting piece of work in an unexpected space as a participant in the county and state fair livestock world.

This year with everyone canceling in person fairs, Sadie experiences a virtual livestock showcase and was excited to take first and second and a virtual trip to the state level. we are not sure what it will like like at the state level but we are excited to be a apart of the journey. We also had a surprise that Wright County showcased Sadie in their brochure.
