Loose Confederation Musea E-mail Club #497

LOOSE CONFEDERATION of ADVOCATES



There is a growing LOOSE CONFEDERATION of people in the art and media revolution. There are many artists, advocates, and advocacy groups, that cover the problems of a specific type of art. And some, like myself see the problem as endemic of all arts and media.
