A month to go!

It's done, the entries are in and juried and we just finished sending the acceptance emails out. Now we just need to get the art here and on a wall... and get the catalogs finished and printed, though I have to admit I'm enjoying designing the catalog wayyy more than I enjoy hanging shows...

Anyway, in the meanwhile I want to pass along news from Tyler Darden about an awesome talk that AIGA is hosting
