Organizer/AuthorCCA Wattis
The Portland-based artist Harrell Fletcher is the fall Capp Street Project artist in residence. This will be his second appearance related to the Wattis's three-year program The Magnificent Seven. It represents the culmination of a project in which Fletcher's friend and graduate student Travis Souza walks the proposed Los Angeles to San Francisco route of the California High Speed Rail Line. At one point he will traverse his family's farmland in the Central Valley.

Along the way Souza collected the ideas and opinions of the farmers affected by the project, thus "recovering" data that would otherwise perhaps not exist about the relationships that exist today between the urban and the rural, the need for food and the need for transit. Fletcher is teaching a course this semester in the Graduate Program in Fine Arts, and he traveled with his students to meet Souza for different stages of the walk to collaborate in planned and unplanned ways.
