Get on your soapbox.

Call for submissions.

Here’s the experiment:

If you were given the chance to say, make, or draw anything you wanted, what would it be? How would you choose to express yourself? What if there were no limits, but the outline of a square and a blank sheet of paper? Would you be offensive? secretive? philosophical? simple?

this space to create anything you want. (think PostSecret) We want you to compositionally stay inside this box, but urge you to think outside of it.

Hand in submissions to Carolyn Isaacson, Julie Whyte, or Micah McKelvey (Florence), or email scanned submissions to tracekent@gmail.com.
