RIPON — Ripon College is housing "The Lands We Share," a culture exhibit on farming and history through Dec. 13. 

Located in the West Hall Museum, the exhibit is open to the public weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. It consists of stories, artifacts, images, and audio of a series of Wisconsin farms, as well as a public dialogue. The main focus is on how farming, land, ethnic culture, and history all coincide in Wisconsin, with the goal of bringing together community members from diverse backgrounds. 

The exhibit toured Wisconsin from Oct. 2018 to May 2019 in three week runs, but has continued to showcase across the state since Aug. It began as a product of the Wisconsin Farms Oral History Project by faculty and students at the University of Wisconsin system colleges in Oshkosh, Whitewater, Madison, and Milwaukee.
