Serve and Project ( S&P), an interdisciplinary collaborative public arts project seeks dinner napkins from creative thinkers around the world.
Artists from around the world are invited to submit a napkin or series of napkins that creatively documents a meal. While food references sustenance it also represents social and political issues. We are seeking people to submit cloth or paper napkins that in some way represent your connection to food and culture. Napkins can be drawn on, embroidered on, folder, torn or otherwise made.
Sizes: Napkins can be any traditional or non-traditional shape as long as it fits within a 10” x 10” (25.4cm x 25.4cm) area and fit within a standard paper envelope for shipping. Pieces must be able to hang on the wall with a small pin.
