Simply- meant to elicit the response, “why?”

We as artists hope to answer as best we can, through our individual representations, the role our local landscape and art politics play in our daily lives.

We do not suggest that anyone stay or leave simply because an outside source dictates that one must do so to succeed.

We only hope to encourage others to remind themselves why they have or have not chosen to be here, and if it is necessary to stay.

Disillusioned by the idea that hype and hip have replaced new and progressive, we rekindle our interests in beauty and the lasting.

Dismayed by a society that walks down a street without looking up, we remind you to do so before another building is replaced.

The city is our love/hate affair.
