This will be a virtual event. Have coffee and chat with us! This will be a conversation, not a presentation. 

Unstillness is a book by artist John Schuerman of quiet walks through the chaotic year from spring of 2020 to spring of 2021. As we were changing for better and worse, Schuerman walked, observed, and reported back. Unstillness is a reflective chronicle of self in society and nature, through drawings, photos, and text. The book documents 22 walks that examine the social upheavals in Minneapolis (and beyond), the loss of socialization caused by the pandemic, the effects of experiencing nature from within the grid of the Twin Cities, and the author’s individual life in relation to these vast domains. These are walks of reckoning and as such provide few answers, but rather bring us face to face with the possibilities for progress, stasis, or collective failure on deep issues such as climate change, racism, the pandemic, and fascism on the rise.

Books will be available through the Rochester Art Center gallery shop (CLICK HERE) or from the author. John can be reached through his website,
