Rich Grula’s BE BLANK Art Show:

“The BE BLANK SHOW was launched at DMAC, UCF's Downtown Media Arts Center in Orlando in mid-March to a mix of insane support and general confusion. That was to be expected though as we're talking about an empty gallery with nothing but little cards on the wall. Some people popped into the gallery and literally stopped dead in their tracks, looked around and fled as fast as their feet would carry them. Some people refused to believe a show was hanging, no matter how much wine I poured. Such is an Orlando art crowd.

But a lot of people got the whole thing. They'd start reading the pieces, get into it, read everything, pick favorites and discuss with their friends. The most enthusiastic would then make suggestions for additions in the theme of the show. My fave suggestion was renting an "gallery audio tour cassette" with nothing but white noise on the tape. That guy really got the show.

You can read a bit more as well as see all the pieces at the DMAC web site, Click on the Art Exhibits link. The pdfs there (yes, I fixed the links recently) show each of the pieces of the show. In the spirit of the show, I've made it possible for anyone to own a piece from this show. All they need is some blank wall space to complete the effect.
