In a New Light Art Gallery showcases more than just photography, but stories through the lens of Northwest Passage’s youth and to bring the community together. This summer, In a New Light is opening their doors for the community to get involved with a community art project featuring a professional artist from Minneapolis Minnesota.
From August 18-23, 2014 come watch Christopher Lutter, Minneapolis-based professional puppet builder construct a life sized replica of the Jordan Buck. The Jordan Buck was a huge white-tail deer whose antler rack measured 206 1/8, which was a world record for 80 years. This buck was harvested in the fall of 1914 by Jim Jordan, who lived in Danbury Wisconsin. To make this re-creating happen, In a New Light is asking for the community to come together of all ages and experiences to help bring this world record buck back to life; literally. This life sized buck will move with the help of trained animators and will be unveiled at the annual Whitetails Unlimited banquet, Saturday September 20th, 2014. No experience is needed, just community enthusiasm to help create this work of art. The construction will take place at the In a New Light Gallery at the corner of highway 35 and North Bass Lake Road., just south of Webster.
