Heartland is an interdisciplinary project which reflects on the visual culture, art and music of the heart of the United States. The Heartland project consists of a group exhibition in the Van Abbemuseum together with a musical programme in the Muziekcentrum. It will also include ancillary events, such as debates, lectures, a photo exhibition, publications, and an artists in residence programme. The exhibition will be reconceived for a presentation at the Smart Museum of Art, Chicago in 2009.


The Detroit Tree of Heaven Woodshop contributed with an installation with six museum benches, a tree spotting video and an overpainted illuminated sign.
