This booklet (#19)accompanied the exhibition Drawn Out and documents some of the work from the show.
A drawn out project is one that persists with little regard for those who stopped paying attention ages ago. For the people who were in this show, there is always something more to be said, always another idea to share, always another angle to consider, always another example to archive, and always another question to ask. But to draw something out is not only to prolong it, but to induce a person to speak freely. Speaking freely is the critical component that binds all of the work in this show. Included in Drawn Out were over 40 anonymous street flyers by "The Ancient Order Guy," soap products and labels by Dr. Bronner's, collected booklets of letters to corporations by Rich Mackin, blueprint drawings by Krista Peel and Tim Donahue, 200 drawings and doodles left behind by hotel guests from the collection of Chris Ritter, and over 200 public stickers by graffiti artist Shy Girl.
