    #MAKE2 “Winded” release party at the Empty Bottle, January 2006 featuring Bound Stems, testimonies from Hurricane Katrina evacuees and more, including a show of paintings from Antonio Ancona. There was a blizzard and lots of folks shaking off snow and packing the room. Do we remember correctly? What are we forgetting? #tbt #MAKEXBOOK
