Laura Milkins Is Walking Home

Posted By on Fri, Apr 29, 2011 at 10:15 AM

On Sunday, May 1, Laura Milkins will begin her 2,000 mile walk home to her mother's house in Grand Rapids, Mich. The walk will be broadcast online 24 hours a day as she treks across the country and talks with people along the way. That footage will also be edited into a weekly online TV show.

Originally from Michigan, Milkins has lived in Tucson for the past six years and is a performance artist. She has done numerous other projects, including one focusing on people in Mexico City, which Milkins titled Walking Stories: Mexico City.

Walking Home: Stories from the Desert to the Great Lakes will focus on community and social interactions.
