Proposals for The Last Days of the Iron Maiden are due on Monday!

I'm accepting proposals from friends/acquaintances in the New York area for my project "The Last Days of the Iron Maiden," as detailed below. The deadline is Monday, September 21, 2009 at 11:59 PM EST.

Dear New York Friends,

I am doing a project throughout the month of October that calls for your participation and planning. For various reasons, I'm sadly selling my Volvo station wagon, the Iron Maiden, later this fall. So, for grief management and a chance to spend time with friends, I'm calling for proposals to create an outing for us within the five boroughs of New York on one of five Saturdays in October.

The selected applicants will be picked up and dropped off by the Iron Maiden and me. We can go anywhere and do anything within Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, or Staten Island—be adventurous, visit places you/we've never been before, learn about local haunts, explore with a mission, scout locations, create your own art project. Proposals will be reviewed based on their inventiveness and potential for new experiences, learning, and fun. I'll keep a blog of the project, similar to the blog I kept during the "Iron Maiden Tour & Residency '06" (http://naomiller.com). I might also make work during the outings.

Attached is a fill-in PDF application. It can be opened in Preview, Acrobat Professional, and Acrobat Reader (n.b.: it cannot be saved in Reader). You can 1) fill in, save, and email back to me; 2) fill in, print, scan, and email; or 3) fill in, print, and mail to me. They are due in two weeks on Monday September 21, 2009. If have any questions, please let me know.

I look forward to reviewing your applications.
