BLOT has been featured in Artsy and selected works are hitting the road as a traveling exhibit in Nicaragua under it's new name "Manchas Literatas."  Curated by DAM, the series includes Nicaraguan greats such as Gioconda Belli, Ruben Dario and Warhol muse Bianca Jagger; as well as personal favorites like Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickinson. Selected print versions of works on view are also available at the Artefacts online gallery.
