Locally Sourced is the first of four exhibitions in a two-year collaboration between Transformer and American University titled Do You Know Where Your Art Comes From?, that highlights various contemporary platforms artists and arts organizations have initiated to develop, create, and present art. Do You Know Where Your Art Comes From? was inspired by the launch of Common Field (www.commonfield.org), a new network of artist projects and spaces of which Transformer and several of the organizations in Locally Sourced are Founding Members.
