During my first visit to the Florida Keys in 2015, I left five pieces out on the streets.

As detailed in my previous post, for the commemoration of my 100th “Relationship” collage, I made a series of 10 (+1 artist’s proof) collaged book pages. This piece (Relationship C) was left on 11/22/15 in Key West, Florida. I stuck it on a Key West Citizen Newspaper box beside the (closed) Backspace Bar & Kitchen at the intersection of James St. and Grinnell St.
