Art Moves 2015 billboard festival will be dedicated to Susan O’Malley.

“Susan took part in the Art Moves Festival in 2012 and was twice a juror of the Art on Billboards competition. She always brought her wonderful mixture of optimism, energy and professionalism.”

This year’s theme is “What has real value? Can money buy everything?” The deadline for submissions is July 22, 2015.

The latest issue of Landfill Quarterly, an art subscription service, features a stress ball from MyNerva, a project by Piero Passacantando examining office culture. Passacantando will be present for Landfill’s presentation at Open Engagement, this weekend at the Queens Art Museum.

Passacantando’s interest in improving mental focus can also be seen in Breathe, with its instructions for a meditation exercise, available at make things (happen).
