“He drew a circle to shut us out
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout;
But love and I had the wit to win,
We drew a Circle that took him in.”
– Edwin Markham
To REACH the Unreachable Star!
We were so proud of The Who’s Tommy and thank you to all of you who came out to see our comeback show. But in doing Tommy, we realized that not everyone was familiar with what Open Circle does. Boy do we have a solution for that!

Be a Part of the Show!
In this retrospective, we want to hear from you, the former artists, designers and patrons, about what Open Circle means to you! So we are asking you to take a minute and record up to 1 minute of what Open Circle means to you and choose one of the following options:
• Text it to 410-241-8882
• Email it to email@example.com
• Upload it to a Youtube channel (if you have one) and email the link
• Upload it to a Dropbox account and email that link to us
• If all else fails, call Rob at 410-241-8882
These are going to be incorporated into the retrospective – it is really important that people see how Open Circle has affected the community, but even more so, we just want to hear from you. We love you all so much and could not have done any of this without each and every one of you. So take a moment and be a star – because what is the moon without the star! Please submit by COB this Friday, June 23, 2017.
