Project Space (613 Allen) On view during events and by appointment only
"STORY TENT" is a (mostly) judgement free space where members of the art-going public can participate in a collaborative exchange between themselves and the artist. Each participant is offered beer to drink and in return is expected to share a story of their choice with the artist. The story can be told in any form. It can be long or short. It can be as public or as private as the participant desires. It can be funny, sad, real, or fake. The audience and the artist are partners in the creation of the work and the work is a celebration of itself and the people who help to create it.
