Around mid-June, three artists from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) arrived in Grand Rapids for an eight-week residency at the MacRostie Art Center (see “The MAC welcomes MCAD Fellows” in the June 30 edition of the Herald-Review). They were charged with developing a work of art that spoke to the community in some way, shape, or form. They had two months in which to decipher their vague mission, develop a plan, and to execute it.

After meeting with a group of artists and artistically involved members of the community shortly after their arrival, the three artists, Christina Huang, Eric Syvertson, and Audrey Moxley, realized that there was a wealth of stories that came from the area. Some were legendary, some were historical, and some were a cross between the two. Regardless of where they came from (and how verifiable they were), these stories in a very real way made up the context of living in the greater Grand Rapids community. The trio decided to gather as many of these stories as possible, and to create their project from there.
