We went to Art-A-Whirl this past weekend- it's basically a huge multi-building, block-spanning open art studio event in NE Minneapolis where you can view and buy art in many various forms- prints, jewelry, painting, ceramics, etc. It's so awesome to see what other people make. Unfortunately, I didn't really take pictures of much of what I saw. I feel kind of awkward doing that- I don't want people to think I'm "stealing" their art, but I don't know- maybe they wouldn't care at all. I didn't even buy much (just a necklace and a magnet) but it was still a super fun afternoon!
The key to Art-A-Whirl: breaks, water, and water! A 90-degree day can be pretty brutal in enclosed, un-air conditioned studios, so hydration is essential!
Wooden mustaches on a stick.
And I love this:
It's a drawing of an actual giant snowman statue in the city I grew up in (and will soon be moving back to). Mark thought it was too expensive, but I love it and may have to buy it for the sentimental value.
So there we go- a successful day of art, fun, and friends!
