Call for Well-Traveled Suitcases

I'm into art, film and old stuff, so this call for old suitcases by the Slought Foundation here in
Philadelphia tickled my curiosity.
Here's an opportunity to participate in an exhibition of the work of artist & filmmaker
Peter Greenaway (The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her LoverThe Pillow-Book) at the
Slought Foundation here in Philadelphia by simply lending your well-traveled vintage
suitcases for the duration of the exhibition in April.
