Found Magazine’s 10th Anniversary Tour Stops At AVA Dec. 10

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

The Association for Visual Arts will host an evening with Found Magazine on Monday, Dec. 10, at 8 p.m. as they travel across the country for their 10th Anniversary Tour. 

Found was started by two brothers, Davy and Peter Rothbart, from Chicago, Ill. and is a collection of found objects: love letters, birthday cards, kids’ homework, to-do lists, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, doodles – anything that gives us a glimpse into someone else’s life. The brothers have been featured on the David Letterman Show, NPR, New Yorker Magazine, GQ, among others. 

The event at AVA will feature an exhibition of Found's latest finds, plus outrageous tales from Davy Rothbart’s new book, My Heart is an Idiot, and music by Peter Rothbart based on Found notes. 

Tickets for the event cost $5 and can be purchased on AVA’s website or at the door.
