Yesterday was the roll-out of the free art: cart , Market and Euclid in front of Food4Less. It's a very interesting area, there's a trolley stop, lots of buses, a strip mall with a Starbucks, and a small framers market on Fridays 3-7. We arrived around 3:30 and there are lots of kids around. I make the decision to set up in front of Food4Less.
Moved slightly to the east of the front door, and the first "customers" enthusiastically checked out what I was giving away, taking a piece each.
This artist paints t-shirts, and chose a piece to inspire a new design, how awesome is that! I was really not sure how the experience would be, and it was wonderful. The free art: cart a success thus far.
And, I am so grateful that my friend Jennifer came out and was able to document the event. Thank you Jennifer in helping with this project and getting 12 yaya pieces a home.
It has taken so long to get to this point in this project, and I am a little overwhelmed with how fantastic the experience was. It was on my calendar to roll-out the cart 4 times a year, but right now I have lots of work, so I am thinking again in May.
Maybe I'm having too much fun, but fun is addictive. I now go out with yaya, the hand colored torn paper circle, and yaya...ya the sticker circle.
yaya...ya has been out twice now. During our first walk I had many questions about how it should be used. During the second walk it became a bit clearer, and after downloading the photos, it is clear enough (at least for now).
And just like with yaya documentation is archived on Flickr.
