Phantoms of a Rail Town
Phantoms of a Rail Town exemplifies the potential and organic adaptability of wetFuture’s Content Development approach.
Originating as a primary research project, exploring the virtually unknown history of rail-era Chinese pioneers in the American Southwest city of Las Vegas, New Mexico, Phantoms archival material was developed through various incarnations – Art Installation, Museum Exhibit, Traveling Exhibition and Print Media.
In the process, the Phantoms of a Rail Town project contributed to community historical knowledge and diversity, generated enthusiasm for local cultural institutions, and enhanced regional, national and international awareness and context for a previously under-explored aspect of a local history.
