100% Rag (2006-2009)

Lawrence, KS's only online forum dedicated to the visual arts was launched on November 21, 2006. It served as a conduit for artists in the fine and applied arts and others primarily living or working in Douglas County, KS to discuss issues concerning the local art scene and, perhaps, as a catalyst for change. 100% Rag was launched under the auspices of The Center For Art, Lawrence, Kansas USA.
