*A Note on the Dubious Value of The Art Projects*

We are pleased to announce that Art Project #7 (June 1998), being the simplest project to date, was an unprecedented success. But please remember: the more complicated the project the fewer people collect it, therefore it has more value. Project #7 (June 1998) was by far the most popular, thus it's edition being the largest of any of the Projects each individual piece of the edition has lesser value than if it was part of a smaller edition. Some of the Projects were collected by no one, these are the most valuable of the Projects.

With that in mind, M.River&T.Whid Art Associates proudly present:

Direct to Your Home Art Project #8 (July 1998)

Follow these simple steps to collect contemporary art:

1. Take a blue crayon, marker, or colored pencil of any shade.

2. Write or print: "Babe the Blue Ox was nothing like a buffalo."

3. Write or print this on the wall next to the main exit of your home, apartment, condo, office, or cublicle; wherever you feel you spend the most time.


*note: Writing or printing this on a piece of paper and hanging it on the wall is acceptable. It is also acceptable to create a digital document and use it for a while as the desktop/pattern of your computer.


Documentation may be in hard or digital form. Please include name, address, and label your documentation Project #8 ( July 1998.)

*editioning policy*

The Art Projects are posted on the first of every month. All documentation we receive during that month constitutes the edition. ie: if we received 3 submissions for Project #2 December 1998, the edition is three. Your official Certificate of Authenticity will then be numbered: 1/3, 2/3 etc. If you submit documentation after the month is over your Certificate is designated as an Artist's Proof (AP).
