4Culture award supports literary and art journal and work by 40+ artists

Individual Artist Recipient Jennifer Borges Foster is about to launch her latest “Filter” – a handmade literary and art journal. She sent us this awesome time-lapse of the screen printing they just completed for the covers.


Cover design Fernandez de Leon with printers Jennifer Borges Foster, Stephanie Laursen, David Nixon & Kevin. Music and video by David Nixon.

The Filter Volume 3 release party is coming up on Friday, June 17 at 8pm at the Fremont Abbey. More info and tickets here.
