CognEYEzant: 365 Days of Eyes features selected works from Traverse City artist Nadia Daniels-Moehle’s CognEYEzant, a creative project in which the 19-year-old challenged herself to create and complete an artistic representation of an eye every day for a year. This pop-up exhibition recognizes the power of commitment to artistic practice, as well as Daniels-Moehle’s belief that art has the ability to inspire and connect people one creative act, one story, and one eye at a time.
The pop-up exhibition will run from Saturday, October 19 through Saturday, October 26. A reception will be held on Friday, October 25 from 5:00-7:00pm. At the reception, Nadia’s non-profit, Look Wonder Discover, will display the final installation of their three-part 2019 community art project “A Taxonomy of Perception.” Learn more: www.lookwonderdiscover.org.
