Ha, maybe! Are there any other North Carolinians on here who live in Canada, or Canadians living in North Carolina? Y’all are coming out of the woodwork.

Nova Scotia is so beautiful! I’m glad this blog helps you to stay connected any way it can.

"Mudlark Highway": A Cross-Carolina Scavenger Hunt

Hello, I just wanted to tell you about an exciting interactive ceramics project taking place in North Carolina in the coming weeks: http://carolinamudlark.tumblr.com/

“Mudlark Highway” is a site-specific art project by Baltimore-based multimedia artist A-B Moore. This project takes two forms- that of an expedition in reverse archeology, and that of a mudlarker’s scavenger hunt.

The expedition loops through the southern states of North and South Carolina, where the artist will be revisiting places from their childhood that have been distorted into dreamscapes by lapse of time and by memory’s fiction. Along the route, eleven specific sites will be chosen for the placement of new artifacts, their discrete locations designated by a painted wooden signpost issuing an omniscient reminder, advisory, or warning. These artifacts, an assortment of hand-built red earthenware objects, are symbolic of the artist’s idea of the South as they remember it today, their forms shaped from folklore, personal experience, and literature. By planting these artifacts in the landscape, the artist reinstates the power and undeniable presence of mythos in a region she has left behind, to negate the symbols and ideas imposed on the region by popular entertainment media. The artifacts and their signposts will be left in their sites as tributes to the Carolina landscape, to its myths, and to its people.

There is no predesigned assignment of artifact to site, so as objects are placed, information will be leaked about how and where to find them. Each site will be photographed, recorded by GPS, and described in writing by the artist. At the expedition’s end, information will continue to leak, along with photographs and maps, to encourage mudlarkers to seek out the artifacts. These artifacts are considered a gift to finders as much as to the landscape; mudlarkers are encouraged to take the artifacts they find, but are encouraged to send in photographs and/or writings about their own expedition and discovery, and perhaps their own relationship to the landscape and its myths.

The expedition begins March 16.

"A creative interpretation of the Greensboro, North Carolina, sit-in of 1960, SERVICE is the first in a series of murals that will commemorate the contributions of African Americans and Native Americans to the state.

The mural, a single 5’ x 50’ painting, visually consists of eight panels, each representing an event, place, or particular accomplishment in the history of North Carolina.” Mural by Colin Quashie.

“On February 1, 1960, four African American college students sat down at a lunch counter at Woolworth’s in Greensboro, North Carolina, and politely asked for service. Their request was refused. When asked to leave, they remained in their seats. Their passive resistance and peaceful sit-down demand helped ignite a youth-led movement to challenge racial inequality throughout the South.

In Greensboro, hundreds of students, civil rights organizations, churches, and members of the community joined in a six-month-long protest. Their commitment ultimately led to the desegregation of the F. W. Woolworth lunch counter on July 25, 1960.”

I don’t know many people who went to UNC Charlotte for some reason. One person I know has said that her professors never showed up to class, but that might have just been her experience.

I hope someone can be more help than I can?
