Share Some Collage Love

I just read about an exciting opportunity to share some art with New York City. Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine is hosting a sidewalk free art show in NYC. This is such a fun way to create and share art with random abandon.

Sending art to strangers intrigues me. I like to imagine who might pick it up and where she will put it. Refrigerator door? Cubicle wall? Space between the toilet tank and the towel bar?

This project reminds me of the magic I felt one day in a badly-lit Target dressing room. As I reluctantly turned to check the back view, I saw a yellow sticky note on the mirror that said, "you are beautiful!" I felt such a connection with the genuine good intention of another person. That little sticky gave me hope that there are still regular old good folks all around me.

Meanwhile, I need to get collaging.
I can submit an unlimited number of 6" x 6" collages!
