Searching for Beauty. Searching for loss. Searching to see what one has that’s within reach. Searching always for something that is sharper, a tool that is more keen than the bread it’s intended for.

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.
