As of May 1st 2009, we no longer accept assignment submissions. Thank you to everyone who participated over the seven years that the project was active. In 2010 the website was acquired by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, ensuring that Learning to Love You More will continue to exist online as an archive of the project. And of course there is no reason to stop doing assignments; we've noticed (801) 412-0631 are even posting them on their own versions of LTLYM.
Please contact SFMOMA at: collections - at - sfmoma - dot - org for inquiries about the project.
