Michelle Benaim Steiner, Lope Gutiérrez Ruiz, Alexander Wright: The Gopher Projects: The Gopher Projects promote arts-based dialogue across cultures by providing inclusive and high-quality platforms for emerging talents in the visual arts and literature, produced with a general audience in mind and based in Texas. To achieve this, the Gopher will continue to publish the Gopher Illustrated magazine. In 2012, the magazine will look to expand its current production to reach a wider readership through Editorial Development and Special Programs. These initiatives aim to facilitate cultural dialogue between individuals through arts media. (Austin)
