ADDED APRIL 3: Curator Diane Bush sends word to the art community, both local and national, that May 1 is the next deadline to submit artwork for DISHING IT OUT 2016 June/July exhibit at West Sahara (side) Gallery. The selected designs will be used for ceramic plate production. Also, MUG SHOTS #5 and #6 will be held in August and September. On election night, at a site to be determined, a "FINAL TALLY" show "opens election night, after the polls close, so we can watch the excitement all together," says Bush. "Meaning, you can still submit work after May 1 . . . but if you want a plate, May 1, is your deadline." The drop off date for art, if your work is selected. is June 1 at high noon. Submit jpg or questions to dianebush(at)cox.net.

ADD: Diane Bush recently received a Jackpot! Grant from the Nevada Arts Council to support public engagement performance during First Friday in May 2016. Taking a cue from her previous performance art, “The Im-BLEACHment of George W. Bush”, “The Big Cover Up”, “Schmear and Loathing", the new public performance project will also partner with ROCK THE VOTE.
