Community Art in Parts: Exploration

Look Wonder Discover’s 2019 Community Art Project launched at Friday Night Live in Downtown Traverse City. Part One engaged nearly 350 participants who all dipped their paintbrushes and tapped into their artistic skills and unique perspectives.

But a little bit more about the Community Art Project:

The project consists of six pieces, three parts, and hundreds (maybe even thousands) of perspectives which will all be part of a single installation.

The Community Art Project focuses on how we can experience the exact same things with different perceptions and use the same materials to share different perspectives.

All participants experience a similar process: share the same prompts, in the same space, use the same materials, within the same community. Then they recognize, identify, and record their own perception.

Each participant painted in a small circle while reflecting on the project’s prompts (more on these later!). When they were finished, they wrote down their perception, creating a map of people’s thoughts and perspectives while they participated.

Come and see us!
