"Call to Everyone"
A Cell Phone Art Show
 April 2 - 30, 2012Westville Village, New Haven, CT
—“Call to Everyone” is an exhibition of over 350discarded library catalog cards that have been re-purposed as canvases for cellphone photos.

New Haven CT forthe exhibit 
The show opens Monday April 2 with a reception from 6 to 8pm at theMitchell Branch Library in Westville Village at 37 Harrison Street New Haven, CT.Says JoAnne Wilcox, curator of the exhibit, “I envisioned a collection of photos as faraway as technology could reach. The result is an exhibition that blends cell phonephotos printed on obsolete card catalog and due date cards from public libraries.”Photos from all over the world will be presented in old card catalog drawers.The "call" went out in January for submissions
Participants were encouraged tovisit their local libraries and ask for old catalog and due date cards on which theywould mesh their cell phone images with the catalog descriptions and randomnotations left behind. Says Wilcox, “People suddenly saw the cards as more thandescriptions of books and journals, they became inspiration for their own messages,for bits of landscape and frozen moments of their lives that they had stored in theirphone’s camera.”
Sharon Lovett-Graff, Branch Manager of Mitchell Library says “ JoAnne Wilcox's cellphone photography project has been the buzz around the New Haven Free PublicLibrary, not only for library customers but for the staff as well. The idea of reusingold library card catalog and date due cards for printing out photographs is a great way to express share her passion for libraries, their history and photography.- Continued on the next page -
