Exhibit: Machines of Interest

Heritage Discovery Center

Critically acclaimed photographer Stephen Mallon shares a collection of some of his most captivating, riveting, and thought-provoking pieces in this traveling exhibition, which is being presented in the second floor galleries of the Heritage Discovery Center! Join us as we explore Machines of Interest and embark upon the journey of the industrial lifecycle and uncover the stories of their existence. The exhibit features over two dozen original prints from the artist’s collection spanning life on the rails to deconstruction in the recycling yard to tracing the elements of human-made machines. Stephen’s work will give you a look at industry like never before.

JAHA thanks Liberty Wire Technologies for their support of this exhibition.
