Seven members of the Northland Community & Technical College Fine Arts Department-John Charles Cox, Allison Holter, Elysha Keefe, Sara Pearson, Nicole Voytilla, Emily Winger, and John Young—are participating in an exhibition in Brooklyn, New York titled The Chronicle Project. This exhibition is limited to 1,000 contributors from all reaches of the globe, and it will take place this summer.
The Chronicle Project challenges artists to document a single day in their lives and share it with the community. Artists choose to create a visual record, describing their days in narrative form or depicting their paths as a chart or map — making sure to limit their focus to a single 24-hour span. They keep track of something specific, like every sound they hear, or attempt to capture their overall impression of a day. The only restriction is that each work must fold down to a size of 4" x 6". The Brooklyn Art Library will exhibit the resulting chronicles and collapse 1,000 unique days into one.
