change is in the air

How did your Saturday stack up.  It was a pick and choose kind of day.  As I was involved in the early stages of two I supported those.  Rolando Chang Barrero and I, over a cafe con leche,  were lamenting (something always comes of that,) the state of  art. I’d just come from meeting with one of the Vegan people, Sarah Steinberg, asking for help and of course I’ve never said no.  So, light bulb, lets pull both these events into one day and voila.  Great time to bring our artist friends into town. Fill the streets of Lake Worth Beach.

I truly believe these coordinated closer together in time could make a very good annual event.  I had the youngest artist with me for a private lesson at the former Cottage.    The artists were to be spread out along Lucerne Ave.  Here are some for the group photo at RCB gallery. We got the ball rolling and the Vegan event got into gear around  3 p.m., by this time most of the artists had faded but the crowd  began to build as it got cooler.  More and more people showed up.    It was a great mix of people who attended.  The music was low-key, but wait for May 3 and hear them in an atmosphere* where we all get to sit and sing along. The banner right across from the Cultural Plaza where the  Vegan chilli cook-off   took place displayed  CULINARY  how perfect.  Here are the Ladies that made that The Vegan Chili Cook-off happen.

Learning curve for us all.  Heard say “I had no idea what it took to be an event planner.” Oh, I’m afraid we all had glitches,  artists wanted to party with Rolando at his space,  vendors had to be moved after they had already moved two times before and so it goes.  Noblesse oblige (responsibility in leadership roles!).   But these pictures show a content crowd totally unaware of the work that went into staging these two events. Tents had to be borrowed as well as tables.  Build it and they will come.   Enjoy the photos. DSCN5951DSCN5949
