Ever wanted to understand the secret inner-workings of your local artists and writers? Join us at Make.Shift for the opening of Shelf-Conscious: A Peak Inside the Artist’s Journal. In Decemember 2017, Make.Shift released an open invitation to artists and writers in the community to display their journals, diaries, and sketchbooks. The exhibit, opening on First Friday Art Walk in February, will feature an array of formats, including pre-made mini-journals designed and distributed by Make.Shift volunteers.
