Members’ Show 2018
Suggested Theme: lush. and slow

The theme of “lush. and slow” for the 2018 Members’ Show
was taken from the Nayyriah Waheed poem:

i want to live so densely. lush. and slow
in the next few years. That a year
becomes ten years. and the past
becomes only a page. in the book of
my life.

– Nayyriah Waheed
