03.12.13 Maggie Valley TBD

leave a comment »

Maggie Valley TBD is a project I recently began in the western hills of North Carolina.  This working title suggests that the direction and scope of this project is yet To Be Determined (TBD).  Maggie Valley was was named after Maggie Mae Setzer Pylant, who was born in 1890 when Maggie Valley was still an isolated settlement in the wilderness.  Today it is a tourist attraction for those visiting the Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park or the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino on the nearby Cherokee Reservation.  This intersection, both geographic and cultural, between Maggie Valley and Cherokee is where my curiosity rests.
