PSA from Nicole Stanton ’15:

You may have seen our wee takeover of Method Magazine recently. We’re
getting our hands dirty, once again.

This semester’s edition is an exploration of place. How can we use art
to make sense of our interactions with nature? We’re imagining the
foraging human, the entanglement of roots and city concrete, spaces of
dwelling.

Share with us how, why, and where you inhabit place.

Submissions due to loammag[at]gmail[dot]com by March 27th. Please holler with
questions or comments.

Date: Monday, March 2nd- Friday, March 27th
