In 2004, RFKinEKY restored the inside of the one room school in Barwick, Breathitt County, and created an installation where project director John Malpede, RFK's aide Peter Edelman and the former owner of the school Zona Akemon, teacher Bonnie Jean Carroll and cook Mollie Farler had a conversation about their memories of RFK's visit and the conditions in which they worked in 1968. When RFK arrived the school was in session and Kennedy talked to each student individually, asking them what they'd had to eat today. RFK in EKY, The Robert F. Kennedy Performance Project, (2004) is a series of public conversations and art activities centered around the real-time, site-specific, intermedia performance recreating Robert Kennedy's 1968 two-day, 200 mile "poverty tour" of south-eastern Kentucky.
