An excerpt from Margaret's artist statement:

"Three years ago, I picked up a book on Native American history and have been reading obsessively on the topic ever since. In 2015, I had the opportunity to visit the basement of the Carnegie Library in the 1880’s boomtown of Las Vegas, NM, where I was able to leaf through newspapers printed in 1879. Since then, I’ve been playing off of and exploring aspects of those newspapers-- from their boosterism and sensationalism to layout and design—as a way to explore my feelings as a white American woman to the complex and suppressed history of our culture."
