Safety zones, in black and white

Can I just tell you how cool it is to do a collaborative piece of art... with people you haven't even met yet? I heart you, mystery chalkboard writers.

Inside the You're Not From Around Here, Are You? exhibit, you literally have permission to write on (part of) the wall. For this art installation, I'd like you to share your personal safe space... and if that doesn't exist around here, I'd like you to share a specific place you don't feel safe.

Loving the results so far... here's a few to check out.
