Small World Tees

Mark Rumsey's avatar Mark Rumsey

Small World Tees involves cataloguing used t-shirts by zip code to create community profiles from the data contained in each garment. Each t-shirt will be assessed and added to a database recording information such as where it was made, what it was made out of, color, size, and any graphics they may contain. The t-shirts then will be re-packaged and re-presented as art objects. If you have t-shirts that you would like to donate, make sure they are clean, bag them up, and include the zip code that they are coming from. Donations can be dropped off at the Richard App Gallery, 910 Cherry St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506 OR at the City Water Building, 1101 Monroe AVE NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. The resulting inventory information will be presented at smallworldtees.com allowing people to view their local results. Daily performances from 4-6PM Tues - Fri, and from noon to 2PM Sat & Sun.
