If a bell rings in a shopping mall parking lot, will anyone respond? On September 1, 2006, artist Brenda Hutchinson sets out on a cross-country, sound-performance journey to investigate the public's interactions with and reactions to the sonorous tones of a 250-pound cast-iron bell. From New York to San Francisco, she is ringing the bell in small towns, city parks, shopping malls, rest stops, and more.
