Not that Haltom City is necessarily lacking an identity, but Fort Worth multimedia artist Christopher Blay is helping define the Northeastern Tarrant County ville via his latest artistic endeavor. The Haltom City Stories Project will afford residents the opportunity to reflect on their city from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sat., Aug. 20, at Haltom City Public Library (4809 Haltom Rd., 817-222-7785). Haltom City-ites (?) will be photographed and videotaped reminiscing and will have three to five minutes to a share a story perhaps inspired by questions such as: What was it like growing up in Haltom City? Where were your fondest memories created? What do you remember about your favorite neighbor or the day you moved to the city? The library will archive the documents and make them available for check-out. The Haltom City Stories Project is a collaboration between Blay and Haltom City Public Library and is funded by the library and a grant from the Arts Council of Northeast Tarrant County. Blay got the idea several months ago, while working on an installation piece/show at the Fort Worth Library, Hidden Views. “I went through a lot of recordings that told the story of Fort Worth,” he said. “I thought if I could have the Haltom City residents tell their stories, it could be one of defining that city.”
