Hobo Kings and Queens of America

Some paintings by Leanne Castillo , documenting the hobo kings and queens of America through the years, are currently on at the Horse Hospital. I popped down and interviewed the artist, who is in her 80s and was on her first ever trip outside of the USA! I will post it as soon as it is edited.

And here she is infront of some of her paintings…

In the meantime go see her show at the Horse Hospital while you can, it’s great. Each year hobos from all across the USA meet in Britt, Ohio and choose their kings and queens for the year. And each year Leanne documents the newly crowned pair.

There’s a little article about the annual hobo convention here.
