Art Watch 8/19-8/26 

From StoryCorps to "The Moth" on NPR, to the Night Light events at Tin Pan Theater, the past decade has had a particular crush on storytelling. And, this concept—that everyone has a story to share, and that these stories are profoundly personal and at the same time universal—is the inspiration behind the Tiny Hey project. Started by local writer and creative director Angela Reid, and with the help of many talented artists and creative thinkers, the Tiny Hey project is about fostering cross-cultural awareness, empathy, and a sense of community among Bend neighborhoods and across Central Oregon. The project consists of a themed art show each month, followed by a postcard exchange under the same theme.

To get things started, Tiny Hey is calling on Central Oregon residents to participate in the project by submitting artwork under the theme "Guts." The theme is described as: "Guts. Courage. Cojones. Chutzpah. Sisu. Whatever you call it! Whatever it takes. When's the last time you did something that scared you? What does guts look like or feel like to you? Who do you know or admire with guts? What brave act do you dream of doing?" Artwork submissions are due September 11, and additional details on the theme, how to submit artwork, the Tiny Art Show, and the Tiny Hey project can be found on the Tiny Hey website ( or the Tiny Hey Facebook page.

The Tiny Hey project launches this fall with a Tiny Art Show, opening on October 2 at Sunny Yoga Kitchen in Northwest Crossing. The art will continue to be on display there during normal business hours.

To fuel the story exchanges, Tiny Hey will select art from the Tiny Art Show to be printed onto postcards. The postcards will be offered free of charge to participants who would like to share their stories based on the same "Guts" theme. Participants will submit their written postcards at a mailbox stationed at the same location as the Tiny Art Show. The postcards will be posted online for the community to view.

Each month will have a new theme and a new location for the art show and mailbox.
