No, you hang up first...

What an adventure we’ve been on since September 2011.  What began as an idea to give the public phone booth some artsy love became more than 3 dozen artists and authors generously giving of their time and art, a publication and a gallery show!

When asked about the project, talk often flowed into reminiscing about telephone booths: the last time we saw one, the last time we saw someone use one, the last time we used one ourselves. Friends and family that went on vacation sent us photos of pay phones from far away places.

We’re sad to see you go, Tel-talk.  It's been magical.
