Artist T. Foley is headed to Bridgeport next week where she’ll give a public talk about her project on Tuesday, March 22 at 5:00 p.m. and will hold an open recording session on Thursday, March 24, from 3:00-6:00. During the session people are invited to bring objects, ideas, and sound makers, then work with Foley to record their own ringtones. Both of these events are open to the public and will take place in Housatonic Community College’s Lafayette Hall. A Locally Toned display in the gallery is currently on view and features locallytoned.org and take-away ringtone art cards that have special codes allowing visitors to send Pittsburgh tones directly to their cell phones.
