Univ. of Chicago Graffiti Becomes Book

By Marcus Gilmer in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 18, 2009 5:00PM

Last month, we stumbled upon the wonderful photo collection of Quinn Dombrowski, showcasing the various scribbles and graffiti scattered about the University of Chicago's Regenstein Library. At the time, Quinn let us know the photos were being compiled for a book. Now, it's here for you to own and she's also having a fun little contest to promote its release: a remix contest. Quinn says: "Do something nifty with the graffiti- you choose the medium (video, song, poetry, essay, digital collage, mashup, something physical that can be photographed or mailed, etc)." You can submit entries to her at quinn(at)crescatgraffiti(dot)com through December 20; check out the contest's website for more details.
