The Social Forms of Art (SoFA) Journal is a bi-annual publication dedicated to supporting, documenting, and contextualizing socially engaged art and its related fields and disciplines. Each issue of the Journal focuses on a different theme in order to take a deep look at the ways in which artists are engaging with communities, institutions, and the public. The Journal seeks to support writing and web based projects that offer documentation, critique, commentary and context for a field that is active and expanding.

The SoFA Journal is published in print and PDF form twice a year, in June and December by the PSU Art & Social Practice Program. In addition to the print publication, the Journal hosts an online platform for ongoing projects.

Featuring in this issue: Nola Hanson, Roz Crews, Patricia Vazquez Gomez, Erin Charpentier, Travis Neel, Zachary Gough, keyon gaskin, Allie Hankins, Lu Yim and Takahiro Yamamoto, Michael Bernard Stevenson Jr., Katie Shook, Jen Delos Reyes, Lo Moran, Anke Schüttler, Spencer Byrne-Seres, Eric John Olson, and Tia Kramer
