I am home in WI from New York and can barely believe I am looking out the
window at snow and birch trees! Yesterday AM I was at Mass at St. Patrick's
and then caught Gladys Knight performing outside the NBC studio! What a
convention! What a city!
Just a few highlights.
Sessions by Nancy Walkup and Pam Stephens on Bridging the Curriculum
Through Art. I ran to the Crsytal booth to order their book and the new
Tesselations book co-authored by Pam. Also am re-looking at the Take 5 series
of prints by Crystal.
The MOMA....a small Van Gogh show...just the postmen...awesome to see
them together! AND all the phenomenal work...Les demoiselles, Starry Night,
Persistance of Memory.....so much is there!
Elden Katter's address....much to think about, but I was especially
excited by the announcement of the new PBS series art:21: Art in the
Twenty-first Century. The part he showed was hosted by Steve Martin and it
was a hoot! We saw other segments during the MS luncheon....it looks
fantastic! An educator's guide is available at firstname.lastname@example.org(in subject
line write: Sent Art:21 Educator's Guide).
The Met and the Guggenheim
The people in NY...they were so helpful and nice!!!
Galleries in Chelsea
Chinatown and Pearl Paint...thanks to Jane in Brooklyn for the info on
how to get there!
Sandy Skoglund, Bunki and Carolyn and Ken Vieth....others have described
The Lion King......if you ever get a chance to see it.....GO!
A honest to goodness rat.
The subwat system!!!!!
The Museum resources evening....I picked up so much usable stuff and
Binny and Smith
Meeting so many artsednetters!!! I loved meeting all of you. Somehow, I
missed Jill from New Zealand, San D and Jane from Brooklyn. Next time!
Kudos to Nancy Walkup!!!
We had a blast. Can't wait to go back to NY. I heard that the 2003convention
will be in Minneapolis.....who has the right scoop?
If you haven't been to a national convention....find a way to go! I paid my
own way for everything except a sub...I'd do it again tomorrow!
