Laura Milkins Is Finally Home

After five months of walking, Laura Milkins has finally made it. The multimedia/performance artist reached her hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan after walking over 2000 miles from Tucson.

Milkins' project, Walking Home: stories from the desert to the Great Lakes, started in May as an artful project to focus on community, networking (both traditionally and with technology), and obviously traveling across the country. Each night she would stay with different people and cook them dinner and breakfast as an offering for their hospitality.

The entire journey was filmed on a 24/7 web cam and streamed online for viewers to experience the exciting endeavor with Milkins.

Milkins's project is currently featured in the Grand Rapids ArtPrize Art Festival which runs until Oct. 9.

Read the Weekly's Q&A with Milkins this July while she was on the road.
