Last Thursday I participated in the Reimagine 13th Street event with several other artists, vendors, and food trucks. This event is “to help residents “reimagine” what the corridor could look like with fewer, slower traffic lanes, on-street parking and revived businesses along the route.” (Read more here).
In addition to setting up some artwork and jewelry to sell, I also helped Midtown Columbus prepare for the celebration by painting the windows of the mostly empty center to give people an idea of what could be there.
Yesterday I had the honor of painting the iconic vintage greyhound-turned-dining room of Country’s BBQ on Broadway. I am so excited that people will see a little something of mine everyday! And if it was done well enough, they may not even realize it as they will think it was there the whole time.
I mean, how many artists can say they got to paint on a 1947 silverside greyhound bus? That people eat in? See more pictures here.
Just wanted to update you guys… I have lot’s of pending excitement!
- Prints! Test prints are being delivered on Wednesday, and then I will be able to say whether or not prints are a go! *crosses fingers*
- I have applied for Zoo Atlanta’s Art Gone Wild event. I won’t know until April 14th if I was one of the artists accepted. *crosses toes*
- I have also applied for acceptance into a gallery in Uptown Columbus. I have no idea what the timeframe is on a response to that. *pretzels body*
