First Saturday projects!

collage project for First Saturdays, November 2009

If all these events just aren’t enough for you (have you even come in to do a Fundred yet??) this coming weekend is the first Saturday of November, which means, FREE MANUAL ART LABOR FOR THE MINORS free hands-on art projects for kids!

This month’s project is based on the Nowhere to Hide: Three Artists in the Desert exhibition, with artists Richard Lerman, Carrie Marill and Julie Anand. Based on Anand’s collage-type work and Marill’s birds, we’ve got some fun bird-inspired collage projects just waiting to happen. The beautiful collage pictured above was done by our Ed. Department assistant, Dawn. She’s good, no?

Don’t forget- everything is free and the kids can keep their projects. With the holidays quickly approaching, what better way to keep the kids entertained for a day than a FREE day at ASU Art Museum?

Following is a real quote from a real teacher who brought her class into the museum for a tour: “They liked the museum better than the zoo!”

hear that? BETTER THAN THE ZOO. you should come on Saturday and see why.

Indie Chic press

Indie Chic logo picked up our notice about Indie Chic, our cool craft fair that’s happening on the same day as Tempe Festival of the Arts, December 5! This is exciting for us since the event creator and organizer, Lehka (who happens to share an office with yours truly), has gotten Ready Made magazine for years.

I can also attest to the excitement that’s been happening around here as submissions keep rolling in. There are going to be some *very* awesome artists at this event. Bring those holiday piggy banks, folks. You’re gonna need ’em.

Zombies vs Vampires: BRAVO to Everyone!

The Gathering


Fun shots of vampires and zombies getting me – staged before heading out for taping in the desert this weekend, photos by Steve Gittins.

Make-up artists, videographers, photographer, and actors were in top form this weekend when we filmed Zombies vs Vampires in Tempe’s Papago Park.

Both shoots went super well – with warm weather, clear skies, an almost full moon, and no police, though a few hiker families watched the zombies in action this evening from the sidelines. One park ranger came by and thought we were a church group (!?) or a band, but he liked it so John Spiak invited him to the Nov 10th opening!

Now the editing begins!
