this weekend will be filled with marching bands, P.O.S, Paper Tiger, Atmosphere, 27…and as always ART, ART, ART!
Say hello…i’ll be the girl in vinyl,
btw, i love this…

this weekend my boy & i were burglarized…someone(s) broke into our lovely home and stole anything & everything (ibook, ipod, inano, digital camera, razr phone…etc).
the saddest part is that i think they are trying to steal my identity…they stole my shoes, 10 pairs!
my favorite pair…
keep an eye out for some heartless ghost of a girl wearing my pretty shoes…and sporting pink eyeshadow (did i mention that they stole my make-up).
on the positive side, i have the best friends ever, and that cannot be stolen.
searching for smiles,

There are few things that can make a grey, drizzly end of summer day like today brighter. One way is to spend the afternoon entranced by the wonderful color pallete of The Clayton Brothers. Rob and Christian presented their work in a lecture at MCAD today that left all of us marvelling at their rich, beautiful and oftentimes grotesque view of the world around them.
Their collaborative working style should be an inspiration to all of us.

there was an article awhile back in the rake that went over the minneapolis art scene in the 80′s…which if you were part of the scene you know how it read…and if ever hear stories of the 80′s art scene, you know how it read. the best part of the article though, is this glitter of optimism by Melissa Stang in her letter to the rake as a response.
thank you Melissa…

in lower east
graffiti basics exhibit
went to NY over labor day with my ladies, saw the graffiti basics show at the Brooklyn Museum…played & shopped like a rock star…and decided to come back & love this fabulous city, MPLS! NY hasn’t stolen me yet.
over this past weekend i was able to attend three openings…the SOO on friday (which was a bit more quiet than usual…i missed everyone) and the Rolling Stock & Midway shows on Saturday (what a contrast). Check out the pics…
