The places in between.
Laura Brown is a printmaker who approaches her work like a musician. She spends hours improvising in the studio until new ideas begin to stick, then brings her work out on the road to share it with the public at art spaces across the Midwest.
With just three days left in her Kickstarter project, Brown is almost 70% of the way to her goal. Here’s to the homestretch.
The National Poster Retrospecticus is an annual exhibition of hand-printed event posters from across the US.
The small crew of artists behind the show just launched a new Kickstarter project to take next year’s Retrospecticus on a seven-city road trip. Backers can kick in a little gas money to help make the dream a reality and ogle last year’s inspiring designs completely free of charge.
The Trading Tortoise is a traveling art installation that asks people to exchange objects and words with each other. At each stop on their tour, they’ll invite folks to bring something — anything! a story, a memento, a letter, a knick-knack — and exchange it for another item that was brought by somebody else before them. Each object is tagged with the name and location of the giver, then added to a website where it can be tracked. Super cool!
Don’t miss out! They’ve just added a slew of new dates to their tour schedule:
Today! Nashville, TN - Frist Center for the Visual Arts - 3 to 5pm
9/15 - Philadelphia, PA - Adam Wallacavage’s Casa LeMonstier

For the past ten years, Sara Schaefer has been working jobs that have kept her anchored behind a desk in New York City. (How many can relate?) Along the way, though, she’s banked a lot of stage time working on comedy, made a few podcasts, put up some videos, and (basically) invented a pretty successful side job out of making people chuckle. Her stand-up tour may be Iddy Biddy, but it promises big laughs — just watch her project video! Our favorite part is when she packs her Iddy Biddy suitcase. And ‘cause we love to giggle, we made her our Project of the Day.
