Share your family photographs and your unique history in James L. Lawton’s multi-media artwork, Evolutionary Artifacts. This exhibition, previously installed at the Michigan State University History Museum and in a similar form as Houdini’s Escape: An Immigrant’s Dilemma, at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, Michigan State University and at the Ella Sharp Museum in Jackson, Michigan includes family photographs submitted through this website and ultimately projected onto historic artifacts. You can join in and be included in future exhibitions by submitting photographs of yourself, your relatives, ancestors and ancestral objects to the website These images are an integral part of this ongoing interdisciplinary multi-media project, which brings together diverse cultures and family histories. By illuminating individual and personal memories across generations and communities, along with national and global exchanges, this art project demonstrates the lives of those that have shaped and are shaping concepts of identity and history. In addition to the images and artifacts that are part of the installation, an audio track announces in authentic pronunciations a litany of family names along with a short excerpt merging with the popular song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
