Mouse House Party: Fill the Hole - More is More

Note from Liz Maugans, local artist: You are invited to participate in MOUSE HOUSE PARTY: Fill the Hole, a work I am creating for the ONeil Atrium at the Akron Art Museum. An exhibition called More is More will be on view from March 27th and will run till August. We all need connection right now and artists particularly need opportunities to show their work and be a part of some radical togetherness and healing.

I invite NEO artists to participate in this collective project. We will be filling mouse holes with our art. Artists can contact me if they are interested in participating by contacting me here on FEB messenger or lizmaugans@gmail.com. I will send more specifics and information about the project. All I need is a thumbs-up confirmation. Please share this with other artist friends.
