TWITTER 140 ART EXHIBIT: The Press Release

Twitter 140 opens today! I'm heading out to Flagstaff for the opening. Following is the official press release for our show.

Artists Display Work Inspired by the Popular Social Networking Site

The TWITTER 140 show debuts at Grandon Art Gallery, Flagstaff, Arizona, with a reception on September 4. The exhibit runs through September 30. TWITTER 140 is a group exhibition featuring a collection of work inspired by Twitter. The group consists of 24 international artists who use Twitter, the social networking service. Coordinated by Florida artist, Sheree Rensel, the group consists of artists working in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.

"We have organized a diverse and unique group of artists whose work reflects technology and the use of Twitter," says Rensel. "Twitter messages have to be 140 characters or less. Therefore, all works in our show are 140 square inches or less. The same with each artist’s statement and bio. All contain 140 characters or less."

Designed to be a traveling exhibit, the Twitter 140 show is available through December 2010. All art work is for sale.
