Community Curates Week 7

August 15th, 2011

Summer rolls on and our Community Curates project is soon to wrap up, with only two more weeks of voting to go after this week. We are beginning to plan the installation of the works you have chosen. We plan to include a QR code on the text panel of the exhibition. A QR code is a matrix bar code that can be scanned by a smart phone. The code will lead to you a place where you can leave comments on the works that have been chosen. We hope you’ll continue to participate with us on this project in this manner!

Presenting your images to select from for Week 7:
