I’m so excited about culmination of this project! 52 artists, stretched over all ages, approaches and mediums have a conversation over the course of a year. I’m artist #7 in the conversation and worked on my contribution last October. Looking forward to seeing the entire project unfold. Join us this Saturday.

Here’s a cropped peak at my print for the project, titled “Cartwheel”

Beginning in September 2012, over the course of one year, one piece of art was sent through the elementary school “Telephone Game”. Each of the 52 artists created a new piece (prose, poetry, film, music, dance, visual art) only seen by the next artist who creates a piece inspired by the last, and so it was sent forth. Anyone, anywhere was invited to participate. Our first month includes a 6 year-old, a body painting artist, a drama student, and a dancer. Just like the “telephone game”, the participants don’t know what the final product is until the game is over. This show will be the first unveiling of the project in its entirety.
