Created by local media producer and ICC adjunct faculty member David McDonald, the exhibit features photographs, prose, and poetry in a collage of receipts, notes, and other visual souvenirs from his time as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Morocco. The display conjures up the charm, confusion, and the contrast of living in a different land with a different culture and a different language that somehow over time becomes a new normal. "Reflections from Morocco" was presented at MacRostie Art Center on January 2015 and created in tandem with a ten-part audio documentary entitled "27 Months" that David produced for Northern Community Radio KAXE and KBXE.
Grand Rapids native, David Lien, has climbed and trekked in some of the world's most remote and rugged regions, including South America's Patagonia, Australia's Outback, and the interior of Antarctica. He's also been to the highest points in all 50 U.S. states and on the 54 highest peaks in Colorado (the 14ers). David's worldwide travels have taken him to 35 countries on each of the seven continents. In addition, he has tackled some of the world's highest and most dangerous mountains, including Mount McKinley in Alaska and Mount Everest in Nepal/Tibet.
