Be a Part of Something - Another Kind of Writing Market

I've just found out about an art exhibition the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) will have in July 2006. It's called In Your Face and it will feature works, or more accurately, portraits, from and of the community:
Get creative – draw it, paint it or write it.
[...]
Opening July 1, In Your Face is an exhibition of portraits collected from the general public to celebrate the individuality and diversity of Canada. Submissions are now being accepted for the exhibition and the Gallery will be entering the completed project for consideration by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest collection of portraits ever assembled.

This isn't to get paid or get a byline. It's for the opportunity to be a part of something. I think it's a cool idea.

More info, but not much more can be found here: In Your Face

It always cool to be a part of something and usually it's smart too. You get to meet people who know people and your horizons expand in ways that you never expect. So you end up with things you know, thinks to write about, and sometime down the road a person you might call for a real project you are working on.

Besides mixing with a new group of people can always be such fun. Too bad it's not in Chicago. I am now officially determined to get you here so that I can buy you a beverage of your choice at the top of the Hancock.

Er, no thank you. Only if I can send in a picture of Angela Jolie and claim that's what I look like.

Hee.

That would be "Angelina" Jolie. Fumble fingers.

Liz, you couldn't be more right.
So, you limit me to one beverage? ;)
Maybe we should have a bloggers meeting in the summer or something.

Now, Patjelina, I had no idea you liked her. To be honest, she scares me. But then again, you do too a bit ;)
Kidding, kidding.
