Letters To Alfred

Super excited to share this from two Alfred alums, and even more excited to be a part of it.

From Michael's instagram:

We will send each participant a piece of biodegradabe handmade paper embedded with seeds of wild plants that are native or naturalized to the Southern Tier region. You can write your letter to Alfred on this paer and retur it to us using the included pre-addressed stamped envelope. Your letter will be included in an exhibition at the Cohen Gallery in August 2019, reporduced in a book, and ultimately returned to the landscape to fully deliver the message and allow the seeds to grow and flourish. "Letters to Alfred" is open to anyone who used t live in the town of Alfred, NY for any amount of time and no longer lives there. You can choose to have your name associated with your letter or remain anonymous. This project is a component of "Won't You Be My Neighbor", an ongoing collaboration between Artist Michael Bernard Stevenson Jr., Cassandra Bull, Caitlin Brown curator of the Cohen Gallery, Emma Percy, and the community of Alfred...

Definitely excited to be a part of this, and I'm hoping I can get up to see the show when it opens in August.
