Scott Mills moved back to his childhood home in Leelanau county in 2014 after spending 10 years away. He quickly realized he needed to get reacquainted with his home turf. Mills began walking the unmarked trails and remnant roads that thread through the forests and over the dunes nearby. These pathways so captivated him that he began to plot their routes on a map and describe his passages in writing. Mills continues to discover, follow and map these ways and he is currently at work on a body of prose and poetry describing his experiences.
Come meet Mills and listen as he discusses his journey.
“Mapping Home” is offered in conjunction with the Glen Arbor Art's Center exhibition “New Views: Home/Place,” in the GAAC gallery from June 7 – August 8. For more information, please click here.
