The Redstone Arsenal is a 3,700 acre fenced in Army Post in Huntsville, AL. As a civilian I cannot go into the Arsenal. However, I can walk along the fence that lies along the perimeter of the land. From a distance, I have learned that the land inside the fence is wooded, with wetlands and springs. The Tennessee River runs along its southern border. I am curious about the use of the land before and after it was used by the military. This is a preliminary drawing made as I developed ideas for prints in the series: Trace.
