You’ll soon be able to see a new art display coming to Michigan Tech, but the project is still in progress, and they’re looking for pictures of your eyes.

The “Every Color of Eyes” project uses blurry photos of eyes to create a long scroll of color-filled circles.

Artist and Michigan Tech Visual Arts professor, Anne Beffel, is working with several students to create the work. She said “Every Color of Eyes” represents both people’s differences and similarities.

“It’s more of an invitation to see each other and to see what we have in common, because we're all human. But also that we have differences,” Beffel said. “When people are willing to bring those two things together in a peaceful way, I think that's what the project's really about.”

The show has an opening event at the Rozsa gallery on Friday, March 31st, from 4 to 7 p.m. as part of the faculty and staff exhibition.

If you want to participate, send in a blurry photo of one of your eyes, to info@everycolorofeyes.org.
