The Quill

Our newest literary and visual project: Slow Brown Fox. This programs brings literature and art directly from the community. We will publish these editions when enough submissions have been approved. This publication grew out of The Quill which was a literary compilation of works submitted by students in the community. The name Slow Brown Fox was one that was suggested in 1981 for consideration as a name for Artstreet before Artstreet was born! The name is a nod to the humble beginnings of our organization and our most popular event.


Our theme for this first volume is: Mental and Emotional Health: Growth, Hope, New Beginnings. This edition should be interpreted by the artist or writer but should touch on the topic. How has art or writing had an impact on you? We are still accepting applications at this time. 

Feel free to include thoughts, music you’ve written or drawings on how you’re using art to cope with this unprecedented time in our history.

Our theme for our second volume of this new series is: Past and Present: The Best Part of Me. This project has been put on hold.
