I’ll be posting a Click! update later today after we crunch some numbers. We won’t be posting any results until the exhibition opens on June 27, but we will be writing about different aspects of the open call and evaluation process and will include some basic numbers on the amount of participation. In the meantime, there are two projects worth mentioning here.
First, our friends at the Walker Art Center are having an call for submissions for artist-designed political yard signs. The call for the My Yard Our Message project is open to artist worldwide through June 30. Robin has a post up with details and be sure to catch this great radio interview with Justin about the project here.
Second, many of the photographers who submitted photos for Click! are part of the What’s the Hook community photo project. What’s the Hook will be at various venues in Red Hook this summer and each will host a separate set of photographs. Full schedule has been posted and the first show at the Kentler is up now.
Watch the blog for Click! updates throughout the next month and during the exhibition’s run.
