Like many, we attended the Spring Arts Festival on Saturday. We timed it so we arrived just as the Orange and Blue game was starting. Worked great – never felt claustrophobic.
The art was nice – we tended to gravitate towards art that made us smile or laugh. We considered purchasing a couple of pieces but then decided to wait until the remodel was complete.
As we headed home we walked through the Thomas Center gardens and encountered some live music. We sat for a few minutes and listened to some “jazz” (some tunes were, some weren’t). We then strolled over to the kids area and saw some really neat art created by some talented young people. We were impressed. The art exhibitor for the children indicated that the kids – even as young as 6 – priced their own work. That explained the $500 price tag on one of the pieces.
We also noticed that the bas-relief and sculptures had been recently painted – and beautifully I might add. The turtle above is one example.
In the evening, we took Boxer for a walk and were surprised to still hear music coming from the Thomas Center. We headed that way and sat for a few minutes listening to a fantastic band – GruvTherapy.
What a great day!
An aside: Why the title “Here Comes the Sun”? In high school a group of us had to film a movie for our humanities class. We decided to film the Spring Arts Festival and set the theme music to “Here Comes the Sun”. So, whenever I hear that song, I think of the festival…and vice versa. In fact, I’m humming it right now.
