It was totally the best float in the place, but the grand prize went to a nice little boy whose float featured 3 real mutant teenage ninja turtles. Mine was great, but even I voted for the turtles and also for a float featuring a Barbie doll that seemed to have fallen on hard times.
I took somebody who was visiting for the first time to see my favorite art at Gilda's Club. It's always a treat, and I visit several pieces whether alone or in company. Strong, powerful, bold art. Paintings, collage, assemblage, fiber art, quilts: the walls are alive with energy and also beautiful.
Friday night was filled with art making at top speed and with conversation. A good experience all around.
