CALL for ENTRIES: Szpilman Award
Some foods are fleeting. I love it when foods are only available for a couple of weeks. It is a snooze-and-you-lose kind of situation. Romanesco broccoli is a great example. It is a fabulously alien looking vegetable, and the season isn’t all that short, but it is rarely found for more than a couple of weeks at grocers. This next Call is all about the value in the fleeting. Take a look…
Check out this Call for Entries for the Szpilman Award from Szpilman (a group of artists, based in Berlin and Frankfurt, Germany) given to ephemeral works. There is no entry fee, but the postmark deadline is just around the corner. Don’t miss this opportunity!
