As part of his expanding project First Colony, Bellwether artist Lordy Rodriguez invites gallery visitors to become citizens of this new land and participate in a special election. With this special voting session, citizens are given the chance to vote on important issues concerning the colony such as expanding into neighboring indigenous lands or not. Each time a citizen votes, they jump up one status level and are given more benefits including having a street in First Colony named after them. Gaining citizenship is easy and just got easier. On November 7 from 2-4pm, new citizens have the opportunity to gain citizenship and receive a voting card for FREE! Just fill out an application form and vote.
Along with this special voting session, new and established citizens are invited to learn about the preexisting Uo'kalani Village through the making of artifacts using traditional crafting techniques. Materials will be provided for you to make a new artifact to atke home or to donate to the First Colony Museum.
Don’t miss this chance to shape your new adopted community. Results from the SpEcial Election and images of the new artifacts will be posted on the First Colony Facebook page by the end of the day Monday"
