November 28, 2017: Wednesday Journal: "Shop A New Line Of Gifts At The Oak Park Visitors Center": Article Excerpt..."One example of this artistic spirit is Jen McNulty, an Oak Park-based artist with experience in a range of creative mediums including photography and tiled mosaics. Her current artistic path focuses on 3D photo mosaics, using hundreds of small images that come together to tell a larger story. Two of these pieces, detailing the colorful lives of Frank Lloyd Wright and Ernest Hemingway (two of Oak Park's most renowned residents), are what landed her in the "Urban Local Made" program.
"'The notion of visually telling a story using small images relating to a specific person or subject piqued my interest," McNulty says about her work, "Ultimately, the practice emerged from my experience with the creative processes in both photography and illustration combined with my interest in history and pop culture, all leading to the 3D Photo Mosaics. Having complex, elusive figures like Wright and Hemingway at the center of these pieces was fitting. The small images speak to the many influences that affected them, both personally and professionally, rather than the individuals themselves."
