Introducing The Art of the Rural Channel

As folks may have noticed, we've added a YouTube icon to our sidebar just to the right of this text. Clicking on this icon will take you to The Art of the Rural YouTube Channel, a site where we will feature all the videos we linked in our stories -- and many more.

In keeping with our mission of creating an open canon of the rural arts, we also hope to feature suggestions from our readers. We would like to cultivate this Channel as a place where folks can stop by and see a wide range of work emerging from (or relating to) rural America.

We will regularly post updates here containing news of recently added videos, so please feel free to send your suggestions to us by responding on our Facebook page or contacting us at artoftherural @

Here's our most recent addition: the introductory video to You Got To Move, live recordings by Reverend Charlie Jackson curated by our friends at 50 Miles of Elbow Room. (A full write-up of this record will be forthcoming). Enjoy -- and thanks again for reading and contributing to The Art of the Rural!
