not whine

I am now officially one of those old codgers that complain about the price of potatoes to the grocery cashier and bitch about the prices of soft drinks to my waitress.  Ugh.  I cannot believe I have turned into THAT person, but I have.  My Dad would be so proud.  But, I don’t feel alone due to the number of artists I listen to lament the price of entry fees.  This next Call doesn’t have one.  Woohoo!

Check out this Open Call from The Soap Factory (Minneapolis, MN). The Soap factory is looking for work for group exhibits, AND they offer installation support, travel, accommodations, and a stipend to those selected to exhibit. Did I mention NO ENTRY FEE?
