The Heartland: Illustrated Views of the Midwest
The Midwest is often maligned as being “flyover country.” Stereotypes, like people being “too nice” or there only being corn fields in every direction, paint a largely generalized and inaccurate picture of the U.S. region. It does have, however, another name: the Heartland. We are a region not only full of rich history and culture, unparalleled landscapes and stunning architecture, but also — and most importantly — full of heart. Experience the beauty of Midwestern scenes through these original animations and illustrations by Zoe Neely, a Cleveland native who is currently studying at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
