a *bookmarker* art show!

An Open Call To all International Artists:

You are invited to participate in an International Bookmarker Art show.

The Plainsboro Library of Plainsboro , New Jersey , USA , is sponsoring an arts festival called Cultural Crossroads.
We are asking mail artists from around the world to submit a decorated bookmarker (or two!)
to help us celebrate the connection and community that mail artists create by sharing their work.
as they are inspired by your amazing creative addition. Lots of children from our very diverse community
will both see your work, and create their own at our festival.
We are thrilled to be building bridges of connection from all over the world to our corner here in Central New Jersey .

Since this theme of Cultural Crossroads represents diversity, we are especially delighted
to have an international representation in this bookmarker show.

Please decorate a white bookmarker in any way you would like – drawing or painting, collage, words, or whatever moves you.
If you like, you can incorporate our theme of "Cultural Crossroads".

Please mail back the bookmark (no later than June 1, 2008) to:

Cultural Crossroads Bookmarkers
c/o Emily Townsend/Artstation
148 Monmouth Street
Hightstown , NJ 08520

We must receive the bookmarkers before the end of June 2008,
in order to be included in the show.

We will be selling all the bookmarkers to help us raise funds
to build a new library.

Thank you so much for your creative participation – and if you cannot help,
please feel free to cut and paste and pass this notice along
to someone who might want to!

This intrigues me. Bookmarkers would be interesting. Is there going to be any documentation about who participates in this call?

no documentation planned as of now - we expect lots of participation from around the world!

Seuss's Cat said...

when you say a white bookmarker - do you mean I need to buy a bookmarker background (not sure if possible) or just create from what ever material I already have?

anything goes - either a plain white one or what you have - no rules.
thanks for your interest!
