EXHIBITION: Life in Pinecraft: A Photographic Exhibition
February 7 @ 7:00 pm - February 23 @ 7:00 pm
New College of Florida’s Humanities Division is hosting the photographic exhibition “Life in Pinecraft Through the Eyes of Katie Troyer” at the Carlisle Inn from February 7 through February 23.
Katie Troyer is one of the most beloved personalities in the Pinecraft community. She grew up in an Amish family in Ohio and, after living in various Amish communities in the US and Canada, she moved to Pinecraft in 2008. One of the roles she plays is that of unofficial photographer of the community. Through her photographs, which she collects on an annual calendar and on her popular Instagram account @Pinecraftblog, Katie shows her pespective on the daily life of the unique Amish and Mennonite community in Sarasota.
This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant in partnership with New College of Florida. Support also comes from the Mellon Foundation, Der Dutchman, DutchCrafters Amish Furniture, Belier Auto Repair, and the Carlisle Inn.
