Share your Chapel Hill moments
What comes to mind when people ask you to show them what makes Chapel Hill special? Is it an unexpected moment of beauty on the greenway? The way your kids looked the first time they rode the bus by themselves? Maybe it’s just a family and friends get-together in the backyard.
There’s a good chance that all of these moments that make up the fabric of our community are already in your social media feeds. The pictures and videos on your smart phone are exactly what the Town needs to complete a permanent public art project that will be displayed at the Chapel Hill Public Library.
Artist Erik Carlson has spent months gathering moments and memorabilia from Chapel Hill’s history. To finish his digital art installation, Carlson is asking that people contribute personal snapshots that reveal their everyday reality of life.
To share moments that you want to be included in a permanent multi-media artwork that will be installed near the main entrance of the newly renovated library building, go to http://unboundartwork.org. You can also email your pictures and videos directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
