E pluribus unum, out of many, one. The one is made up of all things, and all things issue from the one. Here it is the group, the collective, the hobbled together bunches that make up something else entirely. More than the sum of their parts, it’s 2 + 2 = 5 in the Top V.

Hey Chicago, submit your events to the Visualist here: http://www.thevisualist.org

Visualist Chicago

The Visualist, www.thevisualist.org, is more than just a list of dates and events on the internet. It's a really long list of dates and events for exhibitions, artist talks, receptions, festivals, panels, performances, readings, fairs, workshops, and curated content all kinds. At its heart the Visualist is really a cursory archive of actions and engagements throughout Chicagoland. In time, this archive will reach back to the Brunswick Building fire of 1989. While creating this image of Chicago's cultural work, the Visualist is also being updated throughout the week to provide as complete and accurate a day-to-day accounting of these activities as is possible.
