DOODLE ME THIS! THE ART OF DIVERSION - March 1st-28th / OPENING - March 7th
From March 1st to the 28th, The Common Cup Coffee Shop will be presenting an art exhibit featuring the doodles you have drawn. Doodle Me This: The Art of Diversion showcases the art created through boredom, and penned in order to distract yourself from class, from meetings, from bus rides, from phone conversations, from work...and we want to see all of them!
Go through your old notebooks, or the napkins you've stuffed in your pockets and been too lazy to throw away.
Submit your doodles to Doodle Me This by dropping them off, or mailing them to
The Common Cup
1511 Washtenaw Ave
Ann Arbor MI 48104
(located in the basement of the ULC)
Located between Hill and South University - almost directly across from the big rock.
Submit doodles of any size. They will be collaged with other work, and perhaps photocopied if they need to be cropped. Your work will not be modified in anyway without your consent.
WHEN SUBMITTING DOODLES, PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:
- Your first and last name
- Email address
- Specify whether or not you would like your work returned to you at the completion of the show
Most art will be shown - but not all. No explicit content will be displayed. Has to be safe for the kids, you see.
Feel free to submit part of the context in which your drew the doodle in.
For instance, if you drew a picture of a gondola in Linguistics class, you can include a snippet of your notes.
Deadline for submissions: February 28th
The opening for the show will be on March 7th, from 7-10 pm. Featuring a performance by the noise band Miss America: The Movie. Come see your work, meet fellow Doodlists (yes, it's a stupid stupid term), and enjoy free beverages.
All artists will receive free drinks during the opening!
COMPLETION OF SHOW
Artists will be contacted through email about collecting their work, if they have specified to keep it.
For any further questions, feel free to contact Theresa Rickloff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Doodle Me This! is a unique opportunity to display and appreciate art that artists never thought would be shown. It's sincere and random. It's silly and poignant.
Besides, you know you've been dying to show everyone that picture of the dinosaur firing rockets out of it's eyes.
