Exquisite Corpse Show in Sacramento

Hi All,
The Exquisite Corpse show will be taking place soon at Archival Framing in Sacramento, CA. This show is dedicated to Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, and is sure to feature some amazing art!
Each piece will be comprised of three separate pieces done by three different artists. This is called an "exquisite corpse" and dates back to a Victorian era parlour game.

"Among Surrealist techniques exploiting the mystique of accident was a kind of collective collage of words or images called the cadavre exquis (exquisite corpse). Based on an old parlor game, it was played by several people, each of whom would write a phrase on a sheet of paper, fold the paper to conceal part of it, and pass it on to the next player for his contribution."
