Art of the Short is an Interactive Literary Art Installation and Podcast. Every other week, hosts Jori and Bethers, overextend our opinions on short stories, written by your favorite authors. Then we make ART of our interpretations! Like, Bethers will be guilty of “Georgia O'Keeffe”–ing labia onto a tote bag as a protest to misogyny, “FREE THE VULVA!” While Jori writes a little diddy that just loops, “F*** PATRIARCHY!…stuff like that.
Lil’ Shorties! Our Lil’ Shorty episodes feature the not so known story tellers, where we read a short story by YOU, and of course we’ll make art of our interpretations! 
We invite you to read along with us and join the conversation by sending in your artwork to add to the gallery! We want to hear your thoughts on these short stories, we want YOUR perspective–that’s what this project is all about!

Artfan0000 ,

LOVE these two!

My favorite part is listening to the description of the art they made for each story, then hopping onto my socials to see what they described! So fun, often times funny, but also thoughtful, sweet, endearing. Like I said, LOVE this pod/art project!

mishafry ,

Love it

Love this show. The chemistry between Bethers and Jori is fantastic. They have so much fun and makes the 30 minutes go by in the blink of an eye. I love how they introduce me to literature that I would probably not have found. Thank you. Can’t wait until next week for another episode.
