[caption id="attachment_3187" align="alignnone" width="540" caption="Part of Re:Form School, NYC"][/caption] I will post more on the Re:Form School show this week (insanely busy these days). But in a line: the exhibition is incredible. And this piece is one of my favorites. Indeed.

Meet the Artists

Friday, October 8th, 2010
Why have you chosen to participate in RE:FORM SCHOOL? The artists talk about why it's time we rethink, reform and rebuild education. The photos from younger days are so great. Here's mine: "I wish that was a little more obvious when you set foot in any school, all our schools across America. They’re for dreaming, so stop letting anything that gets in the way of that get in the way." Kids are so hilarious.

The large format 24x38" Posters were the main focus of the Exhibition. But a couple interactive elements were added as the installation really got going. In two places people could take part in the MAKE (THIS) BETTER idea by answering the question: "what would you make better?" (Markers were provided.) We recorded video as well, so people could answer more in depth. (The edited video will be posted online soon.) And to go along with Micah's poster series, Kindness, Patience, Forgiveness, little tear-offs were put at the foot of each of the posters.
