Day 22: Event in New Carlisle, IN. Short drive day for an early afternoon event.
Our event in New Carlisle was a different format than the ones we usually do. We were part of a Woman’s Day event at the New Carlisle Public Library, an event with about 15 participating organizations. Instead of a group who came for our entire 3-part event, individuals and small groups came past our table at random intervals over a 2-hour period for book adornment.
No safety pins this time; only cheesecloth and book art. We had about 25 ladies that adorned books during the event. We got some quizzical looks as we explained what we wanted them to do, but everyone got in the spirit and created yet another batch of amazing colorful art adorning the books. Sal kept busy talked about our project and guiding the book adornments while I performed my dutiful role as photographer and assistant project manager. The event lasted 2 hours and we were busy almost the whole time.
The library itself is a large, beautiful building that serves many constituencies. They offer a variety of programs and have broad public support, a true public service organization. They even have their own pair of guinea pigs. Thanks to Roanna for making this a fun and unusual opportunity to talk about our project and create new art.
Overnights Saturday and Sunday in South Bend, IN. I’m going to the Studebaker National Museum today for my last car museum while Sal Strom busily works on processing the art from New Carlisle.
