gathered, mostly from the local public library, since 2000.
Artists and writers participating in the project are
Michael Beller*, Vivian Chin*, Sas Colby, Patricia Dienstfrey*, Arthur
Huang*, James Meetze, Gloria Morales*, Lauren Silver*, Juliana Spahr*,
Annie Stenzel*, Nick Szegda, Theresa Whitehill*, and Steve Woodall*.
(*Starred artists will be at the salon to personally present their
responses, which range from etchings to poems to altered books.)

Mills College hosted the original salon in November 2003, in a lunchtime
event sponsored by the Olin Library (Moya Stone, coordinator).
