R.I.P. H.A.M.S.

After a decade of haunting the AGYU, the Peterborough-based Holiday Arts Mail-Order School (H.A.M.S.), a collaboration of Toronto novelist Derek McCormack and Toronto artist Ian Phillips, comes to an end. [Insert boo here.] Visit us at Edition—Toronto’s Art Book Fair (28–31 October) for the launch of the 1937 Yearbook, which features all five lesson plans, photos of the senior gradating class (including the Honour Roll) and faculty, a campus scrapbook (which charts the many manifestations of this project, including a large-scale installation of the “Haunted School House” presented at the 2011 edition of Art Toronto), and a student gallery featuring the work completed through this AGYU commissioned mail art project. H.A.M.S! H.A.M.S. forever!

And Die! Die! Die!
