Jettison Quarterly at NEXT 2010

Hey Tomorrow People,

Jettison has some extremely exciting news to announce. This year the magazine will be participating in Chicago's NEXT 2010 art festival at the Merchandise Mart. That's right, so come check out our booth, where we will be proudly displaying the latest issue and spreading the word about who we are and what we do.

But that's not all. Jettison will also be curating a show for the festival titled, The Shape of Things to Come. Featured artists will include Cody Hudson, Chad Kouri, Nadine Nakanishi and Nick Butcher, Aspen Mays, Betsy Odem, Colin Leipelt, Ted Boggs, Matt Nichols, Russe White and more. Several of the artists from our show have been featured in Jettison Quarterly, and a few more you might look forward to seeing soon in the glossy digital pages of our little periodical. Jettison's show represents several of our missions as a magazine: to promote Midwestern artists and to keeping an eye toward the future. We are very excited about this opportunity and we hope you come out and take a look.

NEXT 2010 runs from April 30th to May 3rd. For more information check out
