art gallery

The map project that stuck out the most to me at the gallery was labeled ‘Montana.’ A map of Montana was overlaid with western shapes cut out of a black sheet of paper—a boot, shooting star, cowboy sitting on the fence—and while the shapes created from the black paper stood out due to their distinct outline, the viewer’s eye was also drawn into the busier map within these shapes. The map was personal, yet the placement of this simple image around the busy map with diagrams of populated cities also connects the people of the state and creates a general mood.
