In case you haven't heard, small art is where it's at. And we need images. This is a funded project, a three-walled room in the maze under the man. Over the foundation images, hundreds and hundreds of black and white drawings are being collaged, images of hope and fear.
SEND HOPE: We got fear. Trust me. We need HOPE images. Okay. Here's more detail, and look at Tony's blog to see the giant canvas from Easel Park that went on the playa last year and inspired this piece. There's still time. Send your art. Then you can look at it with all your friends and point. COOOOOLLLL.

So, we're looking for black & white drawing images or designs that
convey either a sense of hope or fear (or the future) -or bits of
What scares you? What gives you hope? What will the future bring?
We think the theme invites a pretty free range of ideas and images.
Have fun! AND SEND HOPE. WE NEED HOPE.
Now, these can be original drawings (which will always give a piece
like this more "juice"), but good quality copies or 300dpi scans
will look great too after we collage them in and do a little
transparent painting over them. (Hey, copy a bunch of pages from
that crazy sketch-book you keep!)
We will be collaging the drawing images on to the wood panels we'll
be using for this mural-sized project-and then painting over them
with transparent acrylic.
Size: we're thinking that for the most part, drawings should fit
onto an 8 and a half by 11 sheet of paper-so they can be as small as
you want-but pretty much 8 1/2 x 11 should be the largest (there'll
actually probably be several images as large as 11 x 17-but we'll
take care of those-unless you really want to...).
Paper: should be white or slightly off-white and should be pretty
light weight (so we can cut it out easily) but not too light weight
since we don't want it to buckle when we glue it down (copier paper
Drawings that are copied should be originally done in dark pencil
(4b or softer) or pen & ink. Shading is fine and good, however try
not to have too large an area solidly shaded in black. Drawings
should be just in black and white (no color), and outlines should be
fairly clear-not sketchy.
OK-let's see, getting the drawings to us. If you're sending us
drawings or copies-send to:
