I'd like your work to be in a large exhibition at the Seattle World's Fair Pavillion, opening Sept. 4, 1969, it will also go to three other museums on the West Coast.  There will be a few paintings ^ [[and sculptures]] in unconventional media, a large section of documents, photographs, books and conceptual projects, and outdoor (or indoor) pieces which can go out into the city and the surrounding landscape or wherever you choose.  There is no theme as such; the title will be different in each city; there is no limitation to conception except financial.  I don't have the budget to ship heavy things or to execute expensive projects. 

What I'd like is several [[strikethrough]] [[?]] [[/strikethrough]] propositions so I can choose the one that seems most feasible.  I won't know exactly where I stand on expenses until all the projects are in, but I do know they won't pay the artists' expenses to Seattle, etc., so it has to be something I can execute with the help of friends and volunteers.  If you need specific information -- floor plans of the pavillion (it's huge, and lots of wall space), maps of the city, etc. **- let me know.

The catalogue (text too) will be typed on loose 5 x 8" index cards and projects can be changed for each city [[strikethrough]] unless [[/strikethrough]] (cards will probably be added each place).  You can tell me how you'd like what information and reproduction on your card.

The faster I hear from you the better, and the more hope of being able to do more ambitious projects.  Address is above.  Thanks,
