The Barnstormers Letter to the president

The Barnstormers are a collective of New York/Tokyobased artists who create largescale collaborative paintings, films and performances. The group formed in 1999 after a pilgrimage to the rural town of Cameron, North Carolina. During the trip, twentyfive artists painted dozens of barns, tractortrailers, shacks and farm equipment. Consequently, the tiny tobacco farming community became the unlikely Mecca for the urban collective. To this day, the Barnstormers continue to interpret and communicate the visual, cultural, and spiritual awakenings inspired by their trips to the south.

The Barnstormers continue to experiment and collaborate, both domestically and internationally.
