Related: 40x40 List
Date completed: Friday, November 20, 2015
As I near the completion of my 40x40, I'm realizing it is fair to draw some conclusions about me from the list I've created. I hope one discerns that I value art. I am fortunate that I now have the means to support my values and as much as possible, I'd like to put my money where my mouth is and buy works from local artists.
MCAD Art Sale
This year, that meant buying three pieces of original art from the MCAD Art Sale. Attending the sale is a tradition for many Minnesotans and is becoming one for my friend Lisa and me.
I purchased these three pieces of art:
The MCAD Art Sale makes for a great friend date night. Lisa and I have a similar pace for browsing, encourage each other to buy art that catches our eye, and both take on notice and comment on the human art wandering around us (aka people watching). Afterward, we went to Nightingale for a late dinner.
Local Artists I Love
As I visit galleries, coffee shops, my doctor's office, and other places where local art is exhibited or attend local art events, I'm starting to compile a list of artists I love. I hope to one day display their talents in my home.
