I went to an opening last night at the Soap Factory in Minneapolis where my friends Tucker and Fiona work. What a show! It was the most raucous opening I have ever been to...with bands, art, and a scene I could only watch from the sideline and enjoy.
Couple of things...check out Burlesque Design out of Northeast Minneapolis...this company has their stuff together. They were selling screen printed posters, stickers, and shirts. I met Mike Davis, designer and hard bargainer (I still want the MM Food poster Mike), and had a great conversation about education and collaboration in the visual arts...it was really refreshing to meet someone so skilled and so low key. Made my night.
Next...the band Birthday Suits were simply amazing live. Check them out if you get the chance, you won't be disappointed.
And finally: Congratulations to Suz Szucs, who is moving on to greener pastures at R.I.T in Rochester NY to continue her professional quest of passing on her expertise in the photographic arts to students on the east coast. It's been a good run here Suz. Good Luck!
