Call for Participation

Serve & Project, 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, 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. Pieces must be able to hang on the wall with a small pin and be made by fabric or something of equal strength.

Submission: Please send a 72 dpi jpeg of your finished napkin to us at by March 20th, 2012 for consideration.

Deadline: Accepted work must arrive at S&P headquarters by April 10th, 2012

Work displayed at:

Park National Bank Art Gallery

If you want your napkin returned, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope.

Created by Io Palmer and Lisa Link, Serve & Project is a public art initiative that explores the cultural, political, and economic issues surrounding the production and consumption of food.
