The 13th Screen (The Subliminal History of New York)


The 13th Screen is an installation of community-shot video, orginal shape note songs and ephemera from the Route of Progress tour, part of the community art, video, and music project The Subliminal History of New York State.  This past June and July, The Route of Progress Tour traveled to six towns and cities along the Erie Canal, stopping in the various locations for up to a week each: Troy, Rome, Palmyra, Lockport, Lily Dale, and Schenectady.  At each place, the artists held public singing and video workshops, created a series of location-based shape note songs, and filmed the community shot video The 13th Screen.
