The Art issue, guest edited by Evan Bisbee, is now available on Kalliope's website! Feast your eyes on the works of many talented artists, writers, poets, and photographers as we investigate the question: What is art? The issue discusses pop stars, music videos, digital/traditional photography, the form and function of paintings, architecture, mixed martial arts, and body art. Ideas for "filling the well" artistically are provided in a handy "Artist's Toolkit." It's a beauty, this one.
Our first issue for fall is now available on the web site.

It is a labor of love, this issue. Enjoy! -- Shavawn M. Berry, Managing Editor
