Cousin Alice - Joe's entry in 2006 Chapel Hill Community Art Project
Artist's Name: Joe Herzenberg
Statement: When I feel myself lost I often go on my travels. This cheetah, Cousin Alice, seemed lost herself. She wandered about for some time.
[Editor's note: This photo was Joe's entry in the 2006 Chapel Hill Community Art Project. According to Kathie Young, during their trip to Africa, she and Joe followed Cousin Alice (a relation of Joe's cat Alice) for a long time. Eventually, she stopped, and stood still for what seemed like an eternity.]
Building on the great success of the 2004 Self Portrait Project and the 2005 Dream Project, the Chapel Hill Public Arts Commission is pleased to announce the theme for the 2006 Community Art Project - Lost and Found.
What have you lost? What have you found?
Now in its third very successful year, this community-wide exhibition will be on view in public places throughout Chapel Hill and Carrboro in Spring 2006. Take this opportunity to create!
To be a part of this project, the CHPAC invites everyone who lives/works/plays in Chapel Hill and Carrboro to create an artwork based on the theme Lost & Found. Any interpretation of Lost & Found is acceptable – be creative! What have you lost? What have you found? Does it relate to the materials you use or the concept you choose? You decide!
The reception for the 2006 "Lost and Found" Community Art Project will be held on March 23 at the Chapel Hill Museum, located at 523 East Franklin St. in Chapel Hill from 7 until 9 pm.
