Johnny Appleseed: As American As Apple Pie
With Katie Hargrave
In a project dubbed, “As American As Apple Pie,” collaborator Katie Hargave and I look to recontextualize the historical timeframe and popular understanding of Johnny Appleseed, who truly embodies the American ethos of re-vamping and re-writing histories for public consumption. We seek to make apparent the multiplicity of narratives and their evolution across time through the personage of Johnny Appleseed and the object which he has become patron saint: the apple.
