Weekend Update! Check back on Sunday to find out about the Elephant Parade

I just want to let you know that this Sunday, March 13th, I will be posting a very special article about Sona Mirzaei, a local artist who just returned from participating, in the Elephant Parade in Copenhagen. The Elephant Parade is an open air art exhibition of 100 fiberglass elephant statues painted by 100 artists chosen from all over the world. In the past century Asian elephant populations have plummeted from over 250,000 to less than 35,000. This is an extremely important cause….please come back and visit Sunday after 1:00 pm to read the article and see photos too.

Time for the Weekend Update…..

My pick of the week is this Saturday March 12th, The G2 Gallery, is having their 3rd anniversary party. This environmentally conscious gallery has been putting on incredible openings since they have arrived 3 years ago. Yes I was at the very first one. That was a fun event.
