Events will begin Friday with the photography fellows Virginia Hanusik and David Schalliol in conversation with co-curator Iker Gil, at the Columbus Area Visitors Center from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m..

On Saturday, Upland Columbus Pump House will be hosting events from 10 to 8 with the theme of Tracing Our Mississippi: Story Gathering and Field Studios.
