The last couple of weeks have been a bit nutty. I decided for the first time to do a 'call for entries' instead of by-invitation-only for a show I am curating. The theme---The Urban Garden---prompted a wide variety of responses. As expected, many people did not even bother to respond to the theme. They just want a show and probably apply to everything they find! Other people had work which very specifically responded to the theme---but their work was just not up to par. It was definitely a learning experience getting the chance to see the work of artists in the 5 boros whom I have never had the pleasure of meeting.
