A Media Artist's Response To Failing Diplomacy

When BriAnna Olson's pacifist views were confronted by an adamant American couple, she decided to heed their challenge and head to Tehran-- the epicenter of the Axis of Evil nation.

Amongst a landscape of failed diplomacy and media smear campaigns, she and fellow artist Michael Pope found a society far more alive and hospitable than they'd ever been led to believe.

Like jesters of a modern-day Magellan, they've returned with stories and insights to a culture few American's have seen first hand.

Persian Contemporary Artists - MySpace Contest

In my researching, I'm finding Iran to have a real solid roster of contemporary artists, so I've created a contest for my project's MySpace friends.

For each Iranian artist submitted, you're given 1 entry into a drawing to win a Xerxes or NIMANY T-shirt.

Pretty sweet deal.
Contest ends Valentine's Day 2008.
