More than 1000

You have heard that whole "picture is worth a thousand words" thing. I love words, so sometimes I choose to disagree. But sometimes, the contest is not even close.

"Celebrating the Creators - Aboriginal Artists of Northwestern Ontario" is an exhibit currently open at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery (April 3 to May 23).

This video is in the exhibit.



Yes, it has words. Carefully chosen ones, though. And it's the images and music that take centre stage.

The blog about the video is here.

Nick Sherman, one of the video subjects, wrote and performs the song.

What an ambitious, beautiful project. Kudos to The Art Gallery for the exhibit, too.
