Art Project #4 (February 1998)

Mriver & T.Whid Art Associates proudly present:
The Direct to Your Home Art Projects!

(note: Due to the overwhelming response requesting a paperless art project, we proudly present Art Project #4 (February 1998))

  • Tired of visiting your hopelessly backward, analog neighbors to borrow a sheet of typing paper just to construct another stupid M.River & T.Whid Art Project?
  • Does the thought of recklessly tossing trash out your window, just for the sake of art, give you the the chills?
  • Did the landlord keep part of your security deposit just to paint over the graffitti you scrawled on your walls, even though you meekly objected that it was ART?

We at Mriver and Twhid want to ease your pain with our new line of Direct to Your Home Art Projects. All you need to do is follow the easy to install instructions found below, then send us documentation of your results. Upon receiving your documentation of the project, we will send you a signed certificate of authenticity. It's simple and better yet, it's FREE.
