Artwork by Sarah Look, 2020 Summer Intern and Co-Editor of The String.

The String was a monthly publication by Side Street Studio Arts that ran from July-December of 2020. This was a free publication showcasing work inspired by and in response to the world around us. The String aimed to create a platform for the voices of those who are marginalized, silenced, and underrepresented in the world of literature and visual art.
