This weekend I attended the second Creative Connection Event in St. Paul. It brought flashbacks of last year and reminded me of all the changes that have occurred since then. From the terrifying roller coaster flight last yearÂ to now things have changed so much.
Ha, Iâ€™d love to apply the second definition to myself!
However, I will feel honored at Dick Blick Evanston’s 3rd Annual 12×12 Community Art Show opening reception tomorrow. My piece was accepted and will hang until October 30. 🙂
I have a lot of thoughts to process with 70+ pages of notes to sift through, and am clearing my studio so I can finish the project we started in St. Paul.
ï¿¼This flyer intrigued me but I didnâ€™t have time to explore the distance to that museum.ï¿¼
I did join Twitter after much prompting during the panels. You can follow me @MaikesMarvels.
On Sunday I took the afternoon to explore the Mall of America. Iâ€™ve been intrigued by this since reading about it in 1996. It really has rollercoasters inside the mall!ï¿¼
A really cool contest.ï¿¼
Tim Holtz made an appearance here too.
The Lego store had amazing displays.
The kids downstairs almost look like Lego dolls.
How amazing are these â€˜paintingsâ€™?
I have to admit that a whole afternoon at the mall (without shopping funds) was a bit much for me, and I was glad to head to the airport.
Here is Susan Branchâ€™s take on The Creative Connection Event (part 1, keep reading her following posts). Stay tuned for my report of the numerous panels.
