F.O.B is back! Six years ago, the first “F.O.B. MultiArt Show” challenged labels that threatened to define us as a community too narrowly. In January 2009, over 50

design, Viet Le
established and emerging artists of all disciplines (visual, performance, film, and literature) will again gather for “F.O.B. II: Art Speaks.” We will come together to examine
the broader issue of our community’s identity and what we are allowed to say through art in the space of the national and international. How do we define ourselves as a
community today, and how will we define ourselves as a community tomorrow? As artists, how do you express yourself through art without constraint?
