The event's program merged Art and Commerce in a unique annual journal called IMPROVISATIONS. Each artist participating in the journal produced a full-page advertisement for one of the sponsors. The member-artists who illustrated the journal were selected by the advertisers and given complete freedom of expression. Each page was designed by an artist directly on a litho plate, making IMPROVISATIONS a collection of original lithographs.
