Are you funny? Are you weird? Are you a bit inappropriate? Are you a hybrid? 

Shoebox Arts invites you to submit work for this national open call online exhibition curated by artist and curator Debbie Korbel.  “Laughter is a good way to make people at ease and help us connect with one another. Laughter relieves stress—and after the last several months we are all be ready to be hilarious.”
