We've been nominated for a Shorty Award as a Cultural Institution! The Shorty Awards honor exceptional twitter users, and winning one would bring awareness to our social networking efforts (i.e. twitter, facebook)! Other institutions nominated include MoMA, the Whitney Museum,  and the Phoenix Zoo. Please take a moment to vote for us, and for poetry!


And remember, you must give a reason after the "becauseā€¦" or your vote won't be counted! You can echo the sentiments in this recent New York Magazine article to boost support for our cause. Many thanks.
