PS1 was born on Dec. 1, 2002 in the space above the Deadwood. We’re celebrating our SWEET 16 birthday by connecting with as many people as we can who have been involved with PS1 over the past 16 years, as performers, exhibiting artists, organizers, schemers, volunteers, and beyond.
Are you a PS1 alum? Get in touch: tell us what you’re doing now, share your PS1 stories, memories, old photos, and birthday messages! Use the form to the right, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post on social media and hashtag it up with #ps1sweet16
We’ll share them on this page and social media (fair warning) and keep them in the PS1 birthday scrapbook forever and ever.
SWEET 16 is a big deal, so we’re partying now through Saturday, Jan. 26, when we’ll toast the future with cake, Mario Kart, and bling at our SWEET 16 art auction closing party — if you’re in Iowa City, save the date and please join us!
