Last weekend was the opening for the Fun A Day art show, and I had a really great time. A half hour after it started there were already more people than I was expecting. It was a great turn out and I got to meet a lot of interesting people.
For my exhibit, I showed a picture of each street art installation I did in January, and I recreated the Small Things Museum for people to play with. I offered props for people to dress up in and I would take their (instant film) picture for $1. All of the people who did that were really fun and I enjoyed that aspect a lot. I also sold some of my instant film that I took of the projects for $1, and I feel like exchanging part of my street art for money somehow makes me official.
I was very glad to be able to share this experience with Michelle, who set up a mail art table right next to me. People had a lot of fun making their own envelopes to send and it was great to watch people do it. Kind of like getting random wanderers at a letter writing social! On my table, I had paper for people to write down their address so I can send them a postcard. I’ve already started making some.
Thank you to everyone who came. It really means a lot to have supportive friends and family. Afterwards, Matt, my dad, and I went to eat dinner. I was actually really exhausted without knowing it.
Remember that the closing reception is next Saturday, the 23rd from 5-10. And check out this article by Jill Gordon! I’m slowly posting about each individual project for Fun A Day. Check out the ‘fun a day’ tag on my blog for more details.
