AnitaNH Cover Contest

There is a nice article in the December 2009 issue of Artforum on the postcards of Walker Evans. "Walker Evans and the Picture Postcard" is the title of the show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The show mixes artworks with ephemera from the artist's career, presenting walls of gridded postcards arranged by Walker Evans' own subject categories. Evans was an obsessed collector of postcards.

I was so excited by the dotted design of this month's Artforum cover that I created my own adaptation featuring collage work done during the period 2004-2009. There are 32 collage vignettes. All but numbers 18 and 21 are shown on my collage site.

Vignette number 18 is from a digital collage called Risking Absurdity (Digression No. 1) and vignette number 21 is from a collage called "Pecking Order."

The first person to correctly name the remaining 30 titles will receive their choice of either a set of six AnitaNH Art Cards, or a 90 minute one-on-one collage workshop (transportation to Wakefield, New Hampshire not included).

This is so cool, Anita! I spent way too much time looking at the Walker Evans exhibit!
