bricolage needs YOU!

As you may have heard, the Reuseum obtained a bunch of old school voting booths and soon came up with an idea for an art project that incorporates not only the booths themselves, but the meaning behind the booths – the idea that each person has a voice – that whole ‘power to the people’ thing – what’s the word?  Oh yeah: democracy.

Art Demands Democracy is what they’re calling it.  It’s simple:

1) buy a booth ($12) (available at bricolage, Reuseum or Church of Craft)

^^no crafting skills necessary at church of craft!^^

2) modify it any way you want

^^these two are going for a classic "liberace" feel^^

3) display it in our *old* (!) space on first Thursday in August.

Easy!

Make a political statement – or don’t – it’s totally up to you.  We invited our friends the Conservation Voters for Idaho to participate, cause we do not eff around.  The point is: it’s a community art project.  It’s a way for you to say something, to VOTE on something, to be a part of something.  Isn’t that what we’re all after?  Yup.
