You will work for You

Alex Johns will work for Alex Johns
Friday, January 21, 12-1pm
Common Grounds Coffee House
Many thanks to all who submitted proposals for You will work for You. All the proposals were feisty, original and sincere. They ranged from a one hour video interview of a curator at MOMA PS1 to a great idea for a one hour kid's art class to a man who sent in plans to construct a cardboard dory and sail it (in only one hour) to an artist who wants to take photos of as many different penises as he can in an hour for a book about "the line between pornography and art". Oh, and there is one James Tobey from near Syracuse, NY who wanted to clean out his garage, particularly those "out of site, out of mind places". So there you have it - thanks to the many who wrote in.

Alex Johns is the recipient of our $100.00 Honorarium. Alex is very involved in Lexington's cultural community. Among many things, she is a member of Lexington's popular and impossible to define band the Ford Theatre Reunion. Alex will be editing a story she is writing. Though she has written periodically since the age of seven this is her very first effort at publication. "I plan to make my way to Common Grounds on Friday, January 21st, and sit down with my story, ready to give it a critical but respectful edit". 

Common Grounds Coffee House is a public space and we request that in keeping with the general tenor of the place, that you respect Alex's privacy from 12pm- 1pm after which you may feel free to ask her questions and/or interfere with her life in ways typical of coffee house environments.
