Parents occasionally have to tell their kids not to write on themselves. But Newburyport residents will be writing on each other with dry-erase markers this weekend and calling it a cultural event.
At the Dear World/Dear Newburyport event at the Tannery Marketplace on Saturday, they will step before the camera of New Orleans photographer Robert X. Fogarty with some part of their bodies inscribed with a message to the world.
The pictures will be seen in a video and displayed around town. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
