Upland Brewing Co. | Exhibit Columbus Beer Stein

Upland Brewing Co. partnered with Exhibit Columbus, renowned architect, Kulapat Yantrasast, and Louisville Stoneware to celebrate the Exhibit Columbus art installations with a commemorative beer stein. 

“I wanted to make something simple and practical, yet one that people long to touch and to hold. The inspiration comes from the hybrid of Henry Moore’s Large Arch, blended with form from classic water towers one finds throughout Indiana and the American Heartland. I think it speaks about the roots in the land of Columbus, as well as its remarkable cultural vision.”
Yantrasast via Upland Brewing Co.

I had the opportunity to travel to Louisville, Kentucky to document the process of these steins being made. I interviewed Louisville Stoneware's CEO, Steve Smith, about the history of the company and the process of creating this piece. I then traveled to Columbus, Indiana and interviewed Upland Brewing Co.'s President, Doug Dayhoff, and Exhibit Columbus' Director, Richard McCoy, about Columbus and the collaboration with Yantrasast and Louisville Stoneware.

You can visit the Exhibit Columbus' 18 outdoor, site-responsive installations through November 26th and purchase this beer stein at the Upland's Columbus Pump House and online. Read more about the project here

Amy O

Amy O started as the solo project of Amy Oelsner in 2004, and has evolved over the years into a full band in Bloomington, Indiana. I had the opportunity to photograph her for the cover of her incredible new album Elastic which was designed in collaboration with Aaron Lowell Denton. This record involved so many talented people from Bloomington and I loved contributing in a small way.

"Elastic ultimately is an album about learning to live in your own inescapable skin—a challenge that defines not just Amy O’s life, but everybody’s existence. Identifying that universal truth has shaped her into an exciting and insightful artist, one who is no longer making music for herself but is working to command whatever stage she steps onto." - Stephen Deusner

PRINTtEXT for Driftless Magazine

For those who don't know, I'm the editor and co-creative director of Driftless Magazine — an ad-free, self-published magazine about the Midwest. Ben and Janneane Blevins have been supporters of our publication from the start. They own the beautiful periodical shop PRINTtEXT in Indianapolis and I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing and photographing them for Issue 7 of Driftless. These two are kind and creative, inspiring and supportive, and I have loved getting to know them over the past few years. You can purchase Issue 7 online to read the full interview, but I highly recommend stopping by their amazing shop, meeting them (and their pups Huckleberry and Katie), and perusing their collection of print.
