Lynn Herring — 

XOX! Game. Share the love.

I have re-engineered Tic-Tac-Toe to help “Make America Relate Again”. Turn off the news, take a break from our hectic lives and the culture wars to play a colorful, wonky-shaped sculptural game with someone. It will improve your mental health. To help counteract the stress, fear, divisiveness and negativity that all of the cultural and political toxicity is causing us, I decided to design a game to help us to connect with each other.

I call it the XOX! Share the Love® game. XOX! has a sophisticated contemporary design, using aesthetics to attract the adult viewer and to engage in playing with another person No matter what our belief systems are let’s get together to lighten up by playing and challenging each other to a match where it doesn’t matter who wins or loses. (Well, I do like to win, I must admit.) Dr. Stuart Brown of the National Institute of Play says “Play is called recreation because it makes us new again. It re-creates us and our world.” And we certainly need to recreate our world. So, I challenge you to play this game with me.


Joe Mangrum - 

My work is based in cultural patterns from around the world, combined with shapes in nature, science and technology that define a mixed visual language as expressed spontaneously through my hands. Each painting is spontaneously improvised, using colorful sand, poured directly from my hand. In the process of creation, I whisk a mash-up of visual cues, inspired by ancient traditions synced up with a rhythm of New York City. Forms are executed with an urban freestyle and combined with bright “Pop Art” colors, fractal variations and circuitry. My paintings are influenced by an abundant world of undersea creatures, carnivorous plants emanating electrical impulses, a living mathematical amalgam and botanical geometry stemming cross cultural metaphors inspired by years of travel. Visually, I combine elements from contemporary art, culture and technology to find the common ground from which to communicate our collective interdependence.

Lowell Handler is a photographer whose pictures have appeared in Life, Newsweek, Elle, U.S. News & World Report, The (London) Sunday Times Magazine, The New York Review of Books, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and the Southern Poverty Law Center's magazines,as well as many journals from Brazil to Japan. 

Handler served as associate producer, narrator, presenter, co-writer, and photographer for the Emmy-nominated PBS documentary “Twitch and Shout,” which won the San Francisco International Film Festival and screened at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Lowell also authored a memoir of the same name, about his life with Tourette syndrome, (Penguin 1998). He has directed two short documentary films, (Terefu and Her Children, and Bernardo and Veronica), and released an eBook, “Crazy and Proud,” that includes a video he produced.

Lowell is currently on the tenured faculty at Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie, NY, where he has worked as an educator since 2000. Lowell is an associate professor of photography and was the Greenspan Trust-Handel Foundation Endowed Chair in Holocaust and Genocide Studies for the 2015-2016 academic year. He also sits on the board of the NY State Devereux Foundation, a non-profit helping people with disabilities and their families with programs, housing, and scientific research. 

Lowell was the technical consultant and set photographer on the film Niagara, Niagara starring Robin Tunney and Henry Thomas, the still photographer on Gary Winick’s feature The Tic Code, starring Gregory Hines, and partial inspiration for the touretting detective, played by Ed Norton in the film Motherless Brooklyn, (Nov. 2019) based on Jonathan Lethem's novel.

Handler will be featured in Ric Burns new PBS documentary film Oliver Sacks: His Own Life, (April 2020) and in Sacks’ new posthumous book release Everything in its Place, (Knopf April 2019) which includes a chapter called “Travels with Lowell” that chronicles their trips together throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
