AAUW - update

Greetings All,
The venue with the American Association of University Women in Elgin, IL was grand.  There was one slight slip that I heard of afterword and that was in an articular about me as being a historian and that's not true nor have I ever claimed to be.  Here are some images for that venue.

These "3 Queens" (right) where waiting for me when I arrived and they came bearing gifts and for that I am truly grateful.

 The quilt shown at the left was supposedly created by slaves, bought in Kentucky, but originally from Georgia.

Having these 3 there was like having family.

C.T. Gabbert Art Park update

Greetings All,
I did a drive by C.T. Gabbert Art Park for a photo shoot.  I love the size of the mural (20 x 10 feet).  I love the digital printing that's so clear that you can see each stitch, each thread, and each bead.

Here I am hanging with John who created the art car that drew me to this location in the 1st place.

 My final photo below made me feel like I was one with the mural and I dressed for the occasion.
