I Wish To Say: Sheryl Oring

By JBowie | November 2, 2016

"I Wish to Say" grew out of Sheryl Oring's concern that not enough voices were being heard about the state-of-affairs in this country and her belief in the value of free expression that is guaranteed under our Constitution.

For this project, Oring sets up a portable public office - complete with a manual typewriter - and invites people to dictate postcards to the President.
